Tumbalong Lights: Inclusive playSPACE

Event Details

In 2019, Vivid Sydney once again champions diversity and inclusion. Tumbalong Lights is back and better than ever with an inclusive playground playSPACE thanks to the continuing partnership with Cushman & Wakefield and their friends in the property industry.

Located in the heart of Darling Harbour, Tumbalong Lights celebrates the art of play, the basic human right of inclusion and the joy of discovery in honour of the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Installations and activations have been produced using the principles of ‘universal design’ so that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy a trip to outer space. The design process for Tumbalong Lights involved extensive collaboration with artists who have a disability to create a world where everyone belongs.

Get down and jam with a very funky Alien Visitor. Experience Under the Milky Way through indigenous dreaming. Race your mates at Space Balls, an inter-galactic planetary spin on the old favourite game ‘marble run’. In See What I See by renowned artist Digby Webster, catch a glimpse of yourself mirrored through groundbreaking technology. Journey To the Moon and Back in under three minutes! Then take a moment to enjoy a stop motion animation about the moon landing created by Bus Stop Films.
