Celebrate World Pride Sydney at Parramatta Park by lighting up a rainbow in a one-hour public art light experience, Rainbow of Light!
Parramatta Park’s premier outdoor events venue, The Crescent, is set to transform into a rainbow of neon lights on Sunday 5 February in an electric show of commitment to equality and inclusion for all members of our community.
Directed by master light artist, Peter Solness, the public art display follows this year’s Mardi Gras theme, ‘Gather, Dream, Amplify’ with the coloured rainbow lights representing all the facets of the LGBTQUIA+ community.
Whether you’re a professional photographer, an amateur looking for a unique Instagram pic, or just keen to watch the action unfold, all participants will have the chance to capture their own shots of luminous light tunnels, orbs and ribbons under Solness’ direction.
There are three ways to get involved:
- Be part of the rainbow by swinging a coloured light.
- Photograph the rainbow under the direction of Peter Solness.
- Watch the rainbow unfold as a spectator.
