Without a doubt, The Gertrude Street Projection Festival is one of our favourite winter festivals, and this year it’s celebrating 10 years in Melbourne!
Opening this Friday 21 July, Gertrude Street shop fronts, galleries and footpaths will be awash with epic light installations, transforming Fitzroy into one seriously amazing outdoor museum and making our city more photogenic than ever (Instagrams at the ready, people!).
Aussie artists Yandell Walton, Ray Thomas, Susan Forrester and Jody Haines have been announced on this year’s line-up, joining Gertrude Street Projection Festival favourites Ian de Gruchy, Nick Azidis, Lauren Dunn, Jacob Tolo, Luzena Adams, Rose Staff, Amanda Morgan and Skunk Control.
This year’s program boasts over 30 artworks, themed around 'Unfurling Futures', displayed from Nicholson Street all the way to the Smith Street junction. Key sites include the Festival Hub at Catfish, while our buds over at Atherton Towers and The Gertrude Hotel have also got you covered.
The best part? It’s totally free!
