Vivid Path to the Future

Lights, music and ideas at the University of Sydney

Monday 25 May – Sunday 31 May 2015

Vivid Sydney is a unique annual event of light, music and ideas that illuminates the city’s iconic architecture into a breathtaking playground of innovative and inspiring lighting sculptures, installations and music.

Due to the success of our inaugural Vivid Path to the Future event in 2014, the University will again open it’s doors to creative thought leaders, artists and students from around Australia and the world to illuminate, interpret and transform our campus into an interactive canvas of light, live performance and inspiring ideas.

Vivid Path to the Future is a week long event celebrating culture and creativity within our community, initiating and strengthening collaborations between students, designers, researchers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander local artists and creative industries to experiment, create and exchange ideas.

We welcome you to join us on our journey showcasing how creativity can build a better tomorrow.
