City of Light: Next Gen

Friday 21 April, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm AEST


Tamworth has been known historically as the ‘City of Light’, and in 2023 Tamworth locals are bring that theme into the spotlight.

Tamworth Regional Council has engaged Arts North West and is collaborating with and local artists Daniel Stanley and Kayleb Waters-Sampson as well as digital technicians from Good Crew to deliver a great night of light and activation in the Fitzroy Street Plaza through the community event, ‘City of Light – Next Gen’. From 7.00pm on Friday the 21 April, Fitzroy Street Plaza will be a glow with all things illuminated including projections on buildings, glowing fairy gardens and interactive LED and Blu light activities for the whole family.

The night will feature large scale animation artworks over three sites from Tamworth based animation artist Daniel Stanley as well as animated artworks from Gomeroi artist Kayleb Sampson-Waters. There will also be a community stop animation projection from students from the Tamworth Regional Council After School Art Classes and Tamworth Art Academy workshops accompanied by a projected movie of images sourced from the Tamworth Film and Sound Archive.

This event will see Fitzroy Plaza transformed into a site for the community to be illuminated by possibility and explore their renewed urban environment and reinvigorated space.

This project funding was secured by Tamworth Regional Council through the NSW Government Department of Planning, Industry and Environment ‘Streets as Shared Spaces’ initiative.
