My after-work-waiting-for-the-train vantage point at Circular Quay station gives me a weeknightly view of what’s happening around the harbour. At the moment it’s Vivid Sydney and running late last night gave me a few minutes of opportunity to catch a sequence of shots with my phone of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) lit up.
Sydney will once again be transformed into a spectacular canvas of light, music and ideas when Vivid Sydney takes over the city after dark from 25 May – 11 June 2012.
Colouring the city with creativity and inspiration, Vivid Sydney highlights include the hugely popular immersive light installations and projections; performances from local and international musicians at Vivid LIVE at Sydney Opera House and the new Vivid Ideas Exchange at the MCA featuring public talks and debates from leading global creative thinkers.
Vivid Sydney is a major celebration of the creative industries and the biggest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting over 400,000 attendees in 2011.
Now heading into its fourth year, Vivid Sydney was ranked in the Top Ten global ideas festivals by the influential Guardian newspaper in the UK.
