New in 2022

In 2022, Vivid Sydney dives deep into our soul and explores what defines the character of great cities. What makes them tick, makes them unique, makes us love them and makes them powerful catalysts for change? Our soul is our creativity, our people, our place, our heart. The stories and experiences that reflect our individuality and universality – the untold, unknown and unexpected.

Here's what's 'New in 2022'
