Gertrude Street Projection Festival
The Gertrude Street Projection Festival is a not-for-profit, community arts festival that has provided sustainable benefits to Australia’s artists for over ten years. Gertrude Street Projection Festival focuses on providing exemplary assistance with education and support to artists by providing a platform on which they can realise their full, creative and professional potential. In winter walls, laneways, buildings and shopfronts come alive along Gertrude Street featuring projections, live events and performances, inviting an estimated 55,000 visitors annually.
The Festival exhibits projection and contemporary new media art in public, accessible spaces. Projections range from large-scale installations on high-rise walls to intimate experiences of virtual reality. Gertrude Street Projection Festival is made possible by donations from the local community, businesses and grants from local council. The festival has been a curated annual event since 2008.
