    Humanity has always been drawn from the Darkness to the Light. Ideas didnt come to our ancestors as they were chasing their prey across the tundra: only later, as they gathered round the campfire, clustered around the light, did they begin to tell stories, sing songs, make music and come up with ideas that would change the world.

    Light and creativity have always been closely associated, and Vivid Sydney is when creativity shines on Sydney, showcasing a free, diverse, tolerant, democratic, accessible, beautiful and creative city in Winter.

    CREATIVITY CHANGES EVERYTHING

    THE GENTLE LIGHT OF CREATIVITY
