Event Details

Vivid Music and Vivid Ideas presents: GOLDHEIST as part of a curated evening of talk, music and art.

Over three successive Wednesdays, Vivid will take over the Art Gallery of NSW to create an intimate portrait of our better selves. Our special guests dare to ask if we can improve dying, how we can find common ground when and where there’s conflict, and why we should nudge perceptions around female sexuality. Linger after all the intellectual stimulation for drinks and live music.  While you’re there, catch the Archibald Prize — a snapshot of the people who are important to us and capture our imaginations.

In a celebration of human communication and storytelling, GOLDHEIST will collaborate with Auslan interpreters to bring her songs and stories to life through music and movement. A vibrant synthesis of expression and sharing, this inclusive event will open up the musical world of GOLDHEIST to members of the deaf community, as Auslan interpreters use the power and passion of sign-language to convey the poetry of GOLDHEIST's lyrics in real-time performance.

For the broader community, this magnificent collaboration will serve also to heighten awareness of the incredible resilience within the deaf community, and the unwavering power of humanity's capacity to communicate with one another through multi-dimensional means.

GOLDHEIST and her band — vocals, piano, strings and percussion, are visually and sonically arresting, with a magic flowered stage set.

Free admission to the galley
Talks: 6.30pm
Music 7.30pm – 8.30pm



Award winning artist GOLDHEIST brings her songs and stories of Australia to stages great and small, from the hallowed halls of the Sydney Opera House where she launched her latest album REALM in September 2017, to theatres and venues across regional NSW.

Music with a conscience, GOLDHEIST tells tales of love, adventure and adversity, painting vibrant pictures of the Australian bush, current affairs and events, and addressing issues of mental health, conservation and conflict.

Likened to Kate Bush and Florence and the Machine, GOLDHEIST's classical beginnings at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music shine through her beautifully crafted singer-songwriter style, drawing upon vocals, piano, violin and percussion to bring her music to life.

Access and Inclusion

  • Wheelchair accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
  • Auslan Interpreted - Auslan interpreted events are for audiences who are Deaf and use Australian Sign Language (Auslan) as their primary means of communication. Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters stand to the side of the stage and translate what the speakers are saying or Auslan signing the text and dialogue live. Audiences requiring this service are seated in the section closest to the interpreter to ensure good sightlines.
  • Hearing loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Many venues have an induction hearing loop system. Check if your venue has this system.
