Overview

Vivid School gives students the opportunity to lift the lid on the largest festival of Light, Music and Ideas in the Southern Hemisphere – Vivid Sydney.

In 2020, students will not only have the opportunity to meet the artists behind Vivid Sydney’s acclaimed 3D mapped projections and light installations, and quiz the operations team who deliver 23-nights of light magic throughout Sydney Harbour – they can be the artists and have their work featured in the award-winning festival.

Vivid School’s Visual Arts and Entertainment Industry programs are for High School students and have been developed in consultation with the NSW Department of Education. Both program streams include pre-event curriculum-aligned class activities, a full-day workshop during Vivid Sydney, and exclusive take-home learning materials.

In 2020 Vivid Sydney has introduced the Vivid School Projection Challenge, where students from Kindergarten to Year 12 Australia-wide can design an image to be projected onto the facade of Customs House in Circular Quay. The panel will make their selection of winning designs based on creativity, originality and careful consideration given to the forms of the building's architecture.

Roll up your sleeves and be part of Vivid Sydney – register for Vivid School today.
