VIVID 2011 | MUSIC & IDEAS


Hello SYDNEY 


LIGHTS MUSIC AND IDEAS 



Background: “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 27 May -13 June 2011.  
Vivid Sydney will colour the city with creativity and inspiration, featuring breathtaking immersive light projections on the iconic Sydney Opera House sails, performances from local and international musicians as part of Vivid LIVE and a free outdoor exhibition of interactive light sculptures.  
In 2011 the festival will also include a range of artistic collaborations, public talks and debates from leading creative thinkers from Australia and around the world, celebrating Sydney as the creative hub of the Asia Pacific.”


My BlogsFor me, the few weeks that Sydney is literally turned into a light show, an instalment if you will, is worth just walking around, viewing the amazing work and soaking up the atmosphere. This is especially so, surrounded by such a diverse range of people watching, from hard core fans of the event, artist, to the multitude of commuters and tourist. By its very nature, its an event that appeals to individuals, couples, families and groups.  


As you look deeper, into what the Festival has to offer, whether it is the music, the talks, workshops, instalments and seminars, you realise how much the event has to offer. If for one, was up for us much as I could experience, share and take in.  One idea or theme, that came out of one of the workshops, was the need to contribute and participate in events like this, whether simply turning up, buying tickets, art and books, booking workshops, sharing & commenting on social network sites and meeting others, whether guests, contributors or performers. 


It presented many opportunities, to take photos professionally and/or for personal projects.
