Central Geelong is doing it again! Get set for even more edgy art, interactive performances, spoken word, projections, illuminations, live music, soundscapes and exhibitions when Geelong After Dark returns on Friday 5 May.

From 6.00pm to 10.00pm the city’s laneways, streets and venues will be transformed for one very surprising night of extraordinary and unique art experiences.

Geelong After Dark has grown each year since its inception in 2014, with 15,000 people attending last year’s event and more than 270 artists participating.

This year’s Geelong After Dark will see a whopping 370 artists participating and more than 80 activities to discover throughout central Geelong.

The response from artists and groups wanting to participate in this year’s event has been mind-blowing.

This year’s theme is ‘The Sound of Light’ and the program will include a beautiful installation at City Hall which will bring Our Future – 30 Year Vision to life.

Children will be encouraged to join in The Amazing Arts Adventure, an interactive journey of discovery through central Geelong.

Another highlight will be The Storytelling Machine, an interactive media artwork that instantly transforms the public’s drawings into animated characters. Audiences are directly involved in the creative process and become part of a collective story in this unusual interactive technology experience.

We’ll share more highlights over the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
