First Nations students and emerging artists from our Solid Ground program will transform the Wulugul Walk at Crown Sydney during Vivid Sydney with hundreds of their unique designs projected on the 160m outdoor walkway.

Titled ‘The Gallery,’ artworks have been created by students from Evans High School Blacktown, Chifley College Dunheved Campus, Chifley College Bidwill Campus and the Baabayn Aboriginal Corporation ‘Young Mums and Bubs’ group. The collated designs reflect community and show a diversity of techniques, compositions and styles. Be entranced as light constantly morphs, evolves and reinvents part of Wulugul Walk for the whole festival period.

The Gallery was then transferred to the Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre, Civic Plaza Village Green and Max Webber Library.
