Taking the lights of the north coast to Sydney, Murwillumbah and Kingscliff TAFE students are preparing to illuminate The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney with their Light Houses light installations as part of the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas, Vivid Sydney.
This will be the first time regional TAFE NSW students have been involved in Vivid Sydney, giving them incredibly valuable work experience. TAFE NSW Murwillumbah and Kingscliff Diploma Visual Art students have collaborated with students from TAFE NSW Enmore, Eora, Port Macquarie, Wauchope and Nepean to have their creative vision incorporated as part of the installation.
In its tenth year the festival highlights the talents of the next generation of designers, 3D artists, animators and electronic musicians.
For the second consecutive year, TAFE NSW student installations will illuminate The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. This year visitors will follow a pathway that weaves through an exciting nocturnal environment inspired by nature. The inspiration behind the Light Houses installation is the role lighthouses played over Australia’s history in welcoming successive waves of immigrants to Australian shores, chart a course to a safe haven.
The Light Houses installations will appear as part of the festival for 23 nights from Friday 25 May to Saturday 16 June.
