The Gertrude Association is excited to bring you the 2012 Gertrude Street Projection Festival — the 5th since we began in 2008.
Our not for profit — and volunteer run — Association presents the Festival to celebrate community and art. We showcase site-specific work by guest projection artists along with a range of works created by general entry artists and community groups.
This year’s theme Elements encapsulates all the things that make up our community and us. The physical, the ephemeral, the brave, the crazy inspired, the passionate and the four elements themselves. Our artists’ remarkable responses to the theme have been both literal and abstract. Their work brings out the many meanings of elements. You can explore this remarkably diverse and creative free street gallery, every night 6pm – midnight from 20 July to 29 July.
Thank you to our artists, to the Street’s traders, to our sponsors, to our volunteers, and to you the gallery goers.
Many thanks also to our Sponsors
