The immersive art festival is coming back to Bendigo. After attracting over 600, 000 visitors in 2018, White Night is ready to take over the town this spring. Having been postponed for two years in a row due to the pandemic, this year is set to be extra special. Travel out to Bendigo and see gorgeous installations on Saturday September 3.
A night of illuminated art in Bendigo
Since White Night began in Melbourne in 2013, it has grown to become a huge event on the state’s cultural calendar, filled with immersive art and community participation. This year, Bendigo will shine bright with illuminated art over one spectacular night. The program will be directed by internationally acclaimed artist Joseph O’Farrell. Artists will show off their skills in a range of categories, such as installation, visual art, lighting, audio-visual, projection, film, music and performance. The theme for this year will be “everything on the land is reflected in the sky”.
“Welcoming back White Night to Bendigo is great news for locals, visitors and the region’s tourism and hospitality businesses that are set to benefit from this spectacular event,” said Martin Pakula, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events.
Earlier this year, it was also announced that White Night would take over the regional city of Shepparton. This event will be led by Artistic Director Andrew Walsh AM, who was the founding Artistic Director for White Night in Melbourne. However, dates for Shepparton have not been released just yet.
Keep an eye out for more information about this event over the coming months on their website.
