Go towards the light
THE state’s largest light and illumination festival is just days away, with creative director Drew Anthony believing Kaleidoscope has become Perth’s mustsee festival.
Returning for its third consecutive year, Kaleidoscope Festival will shine a spotlight on Joondalup for four nights, November 1-4, featuring 89 local, interstate and international visual artists and performers.
Drew, who has worked on many large-scale events including the Sydney Olympics Closing Ceremony, Doha Asian Games, Vancouver Winter Olympics and White Night in Melbourne and Ballarat, said he was honoured to curate the free festival again this year.
“Kaleidoscope has very quickly taken its place as one of Australia’s most exciting light and illumination festivals,” he said.
“It’s been a joy working with these really talented and creative people to help bring their awesome ideas to our very big audience.”
Drew said he had learnt “so much” from his first year and he knew families would “enjoy this year’s festival even more than last year”.
He said there were 17 attractions this year.
