Pull up a chair and join us by the fire…
From June 29 –July 3, Melbourne’s iconic Fed Square will be transformed by some of Victoria’s most gifted regional artists and their communities. As part of Regional Arts Victoria’s statewide project Illuminated by Fire and Fed Square’s The Light in Winter festival, 10 extraordinary projects will be installedand showcased with a series of events, talks and tours.
Stave off the winter chill and join our artists on a guided tour through 10 projects as diverse as they are beautiful. Listen to how they explored the theme of fire through art: how do you cook the perfect scone in a wood-fired stove? What makes a Spider Orchid bloom? And how can adversity bring communities together? They will also shine a light through the winter gloom with guided night tours that explore the installations after dark. Make sure you rug up when the sun sets, as all the artworks will come alive with light displays and stunning fire imagery.
The artworks will be supplemented by a program of daily talks conducted by emergency services workers, writers, academics, artists, and journalists on the role of fire in our environment. Take a self-guided adventure through art, or let yourself be hosted by one of our regional artists.
We all know that fire has the capacity to tear communities apart. Join us at Fed Square to experience how it can bring people together.
