Celebration of light and reflection
THE program for Kaleidoscope Festival has been released, with 89 artists to put Joondalup in the spotlight over four nights in November.
Creative director Drew Anthony said artists had embraced the young festival and were excited to showcase their light installations, illuminations, projections, art and live performances to an expected audience of more than 80,000 people from November 1 to 4.
“Kaleidoscope 2018 sees an amazingly talented group of local, interstate and international visual artists and performers combining for what will be an entertaining festival for the whole family,” he said.
“We have some cool projections, a bunch of great walk-through installations and fun live performances.
“This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Joondalup as a city and this third Kaleidoscope Festival provides the opportunity to reflect on the city’s past, present and future.”
This will include Joondalup – A Pictorial History. Projected on the southern windows of Joondalup Library, it will take visitors on a journey from the lakes on the east to the coast on the west with pictures from the City’s libraries’ collection that have been given a creative treatment by local visual artist Roly Skender.
Another addition includes Armistice Park featuring The Sunflowers by ONGA Artful Light from Thailand.
