Aus Lights on the River was a resounding success in 2022 and Illuminart is back to light up the night with a colourful and astounding display of light, sound, and shapes in Elder Park/Tarntanya Wama.

Illuminart is highly regarded storytelling projection art directors and their work ranges from the quirky to the ethereal and the wondrous. The 2023 program, created in collaboration with First Nation elders and traditional owners, explores themes such as Belonging to Country and Connecting to Nature and it's a great opportunity to engage with both technology and culture.
