The festival celebrates projection art and lets us see familiar spaces and buildings in new, inspired ways. It’s a collaborative, volunteer effort of artists and traders, residents and community groups all brought together by The Gertrude Association.
For 10 evenings in July and in over 30 sites, the length of Gertrude Street in Fitzroy will be illuminated by the visions of talented projections artists for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Buildings, laneways, footpaths and tree trunks will be lit up with site-specific, curated projections which respond to the theme Illuminate.
The Opening Night Ceremony at Atherton Gardens will feature installations by E2 and the Light Foundation and performances by Abe Ape, Quashani Bahd, Vissolela Ndenzako and The Red Brigade.
The Festival Hub located upstairs at Gertrude’s Brown Couch boasts an incredible line-up of events, including live music, workshops, master classes, panel forums and much more. The Festival’s diverse arts program celebrates and connects our diverse community.
