SPARK After Dark

The Bremer River will become centre stage for Refraction – an art, light and water installation defined by the refraction of light through liquid to create an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colour.

Refraction’s soundtrack will be playing at the Riverlink Amphitheatre and on the Riverheart Boardwalk. You can also experience the event using a device and headphones and tuning into the web-based audio experience.

Just a short walk from Refraction, SPARK After Dark’s deLight will transform the iconic St Mary’s Church at Woodend into a canvas showcasing local artworks through projection, reflecting the culture of Ipswich, its people and places. Different artists will be profiled each night of the festival.

In the Nicholas Street Precinct, University of Southern Queensland engineering students will blend science, art and tech when they take over the façade of the new Ipswich City Council administration building with pixel – an LED light activation created through vector equations and matrices.

  • When: The duration of the festival 8-11 July (6.30pm-10.30pm)
  • Where: The Bremer River, St Mary’s Church, Nicholas Street Precinct
  • Cost: Free

Circus workshops suit primary and secondary students (spaces are limited).
