Name of Project Light sculpture installations at NEWPORT SCULPTURE TRAIL launch event
Date & time Friday 13th November 2015 from 6-9pm
Location Robertson Rd and Foamcrest Ave car park in Newport shopping village

On Friday evening 13th November, the heart of Newport shopping village will be transformed once again into a twilight pedestrian piazza for the launch of the annual Newport Sculpture Trail.

Last year, over 2,000 people came into the village for the event, which included an inaugural “beach arts market”, local artists painting the wall panels of the BWS arcade and Newport’s famous eateries.

As for the 2014 launch event, the theme for 2015 will be “inspired by the sea”, but the 2015 launch event promises to be even bigger and better!


This year, we are inviting Northern Beaches schools, artist collectives and community groups to participate by creating light sculpture installations to showcase their work at the launch event.

Below is a sample of the type of light sculptures we had in mind – photos taken at the recent Lismore Lantern Festival.

There will be a maximum of 12 places of approximately 1.5 metres x 1.5 metres allocated at points around the launch event. It is expected that groups will seek their own sponsorship for materials and creation of their installations, and will have an opportunity to fundraise on the evening through coin donations from people who like their installations and want to have their photos taken with it. It is also an ideal opportunity to promote your organisation or group for FREE!

If you are interested in securing a spot for an installation, please email or call Patsy Clayton-Fry 0403 817 341

But do hurry to express your interest as places are limited!
