White Night Geelong is Almost Here
Posted 9 October 2018
White Night Geelong is on Saturday 13 October 2018, and runs from 7pm until 2am.
WHAT IS WHITE NIGHT GEELONG?
Inspired by the international Nuit Blanche movement that began in Paris in 2002 and came to Australia as White Night Melbourne in 2013, this spectacular event finds the city reimagined through art, music, colour and light. Making its debut this year, White Night Geelong welcomes all to witness the city reimagined in a one-night-only festival of illumination, transformation and participation.
WHERE WILL WHITE NIGHT GEELONG BE HELD, EXACTLY?
The White Night Geelong precinct features Gheringhap Street as its spine and one block either side. It is bordered in the south by Ryrie Street and Western Beach Road in the north.
A showcase of live music, Geelong Live features a diverse line-up of live bands and performers throughout White Night Geelong. Whatever your tastes, there’s something for you at the main stage in the courtyard at The Gordon.
IS WHITE NIGHT GEELONG FREE?
Almost everything at White Night Geelong is free, but some venues may have ticketed events; these will be clearly indicated on their individual program listings, along with booking details.
IS WHITE NIGHT GEELONG SUITABLE FOR A GENERAL AUDIENCE?
The majority of the White Night Geelong program is suitable for all ages. Any venues or works with an age restriction due to program content will be identified on individual program listings.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE WHITE NIGHT GEELONG PROGRAM?
WHEN WILL THE PROJECTIONS AND LIGHTING DISPLAYS START AND END?
White Night Geelong runs from 7pm to 2am, however the projections and lighting works are best viewed after darkness falls (around 8pm).
WILL I BE ABLE TO SEE THE ENTIRE WHITE NIGHT GEELONG PROGRAM?
The White Night Geelong program has lots of free activities, so you may not be able to experience every single thing. But if you want to try, you have from 7pm until 2am! Pace yourself, and take advantage of the quieter moments to rest and recharge and enjoy your evening. White Night Geelong is yours to create for yourself – no two people will have the same experience.
WHO CREATED AND PRODUCES THE EVENT?
White Night Geelong is a State Government of Victoria initiative that is owned and managed by Visit Victoria, and proudly supported by the City of Greater Geelong. It is produced by David Atkins Enterprises, with Artistic Director David Atkins OAM at the helm curating works created by local, regional and national artists.
