On 1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th of March this year, some of Canberra’s iconic buildings became canvasses for light projections festival called Enlighten Canberra 2013.
This year I had the chance to volunteer for the event on the 9th. I also didn’t want to miss a chance to be there as a visitor and snap some pictures. I think some of the light projections are really breathtaking.
My favorite was the National Gallery of Australia. It was projected with Toulouse-Lautrec’s Moulin Rouge Arts which are also currently being exhibited in the same gallery.
On the 8th and 9th, the forecourt of the National Gallery was transformed into parisian street, with lamp lined boulevard, music, performances, and French-inspired cafes and pop-up shop.
This is a particularly special month for Canberra because it is turning 100 years old TODAY! Happy Birthday Canberra! I feel very lucky to be able to live in Canberra on its’ 100th Birthday, it makes me feel so special :)
So keep reading for other special events this month in Canberra that I will post about, including the Balloon Spectacular and Handmade Market.
