Tumbalong Lights is a collection of four interactive-play installations that form an inclusive and accessible Vivid Lights experience for both children and the young at heart.
The four under-the-sea-themed installations allow children and their families to interact with creative, awe-inspiring light experiences that help produce a sense of empowerment, a sense of control and a sense of community, while at the same time inspiring fun and playfulness.
The interactive experiences offered by this extraordinary play area will enchant children of all ages. And it is remarkable to see how the innovative incorporation of inclusive design principles adds to the overall quality of the experience while opening up possibilities of play, engagement and wonder for children with disability.
This is the second year that Cushman & Wakefield has worked with Vivid Sydney as the festival’s Access and Inclusion Partner. This partnership has enabled the festival to keep pushing the boundaries in terms of how access and inclusion principles can be incorporated into major public events.
For the first time at Vivid Sydney, Tumbalong Lights offers an opportunity for families who have children with a disability to pre-book tickets free-of-charge to ensure a seamless festival experience.
Fireworks on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm
