In 2015 The Gertrude Street Projection Festival (GSPF) celebrated its eighth year of staging inner Melbourne’s most visible and accessible free large scale arts festival.
The festival celebrates projection art and allows audiences to see familiar spaces and buildings in new, inspired ways. It’s a collaborative, volunteer effort of artists and traders, residents and community groups all brought together by The Gertrude Projection Association.
For 10 evenings in July and in over 35 sites, the length of Gertrude Street in Fitzroy is illuminated by the visions of talented projection artists for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Buildings, laneways, footpaths and tree trunks light up with site-specific, curated projections. The Festival’s arts program celebrates Fitzroy shining a light on the areas diverse talented community.
The Artful Dodgers studios have been collaborating with the festival since its inception and have relished the opportunity to share the work of the studios with the wider Fitzroy community.
