The ANU campus will come to life over five thrilling nights with vibrant projections, special food stalls and entertainment as part of the Enlighten Festival.
There will be projections on five iconic buildings across campus, School of Music, School of Art, Hedley Bull Building, University House and Menzies Library. You will see the campus history come to life through original archival footage, fly through the projections of the solar system and open your mind to the wonders of the creative arts through illumination.
The School of Art will feature NEW LIGHT Projections which are short experimental moving-image works by Aboriginal artists, screening as silent projections.
