Chatswood NSW 2067
Vivid Sydney at Chatswood shares the love as local and international artists combine light and art to create a cityscape of peace and harmony.
At Chatswood Interchange play the Cascading Harp inspired by Tibetan prayer flags. Explore geometric designs at Light Bazaar, representing the peaceful nature of Islam in modern day Australia. Chatswood Mall is larger than life! Chattie’s Wood welcomes audiences with a giant projection of colourful works from Indigenous artist Gambirra Illume. Explore global peace at Listen to the World, a mesmerising six-metre tall heart-shaped sculpture of the world. Visitors of all ages and abilities can play the musical trumpets, activating forty giant Trumpet Flowers to sing and light up. Mysteriously suspended above giant wings with intricate projections create an interactive dance between light and shadow in I Dance With You. Mills Lane becomes a canvas of colour as Woodie the chalk drawing robot uses census data to create artwork depicting the people of Chatswood.
The Concourse architecture is transformed by a surreal deconstruction of the building using cutting edge 3D projection mapping art. Hungarian artist collective Limelight were inspired by Chatswood’s diverse culture and history to create Coexistence, exploring visual and metaphorical connections between the building façade and the theme of human coexistence. Six international students mentored by the Limelight Academy will create a visual and auditory feast on The Concourse. Hailing from Germany, Belgium, Slovakia, Korea, Vietnam and Wagga Wagga, experience what these artists will bring to the future global projection mapping scene.
Lovers of contemporary music and jazz can experience Vivid Music with ticketed performances by Lisa Fischer and Vince Jones. In a showcase of future young composers and an enlightening performance from the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra, there’s music for everyone at The Concourse. Vivid Ideas returns to Chatswood when girl gamers take over The Concourse in a 3-day Girl Gamer Esports Festival, competing for their place in the World Championships. Join free talks at Chatswood Chase Sydney with expert discussions on clean beauty, wearable fitness technology and the wellness revolution.
