There's plenty of festive fun for the whole family in Yarra! Celebrate the wonder and magic of the holidays with our artwork projections and op shop Christmas windows.

Artwork Projections

Thursday 15 December – Tuesday 3 January
every night after dusk
at Richmond Town Hall

The Richmond Town Hall projections will once again light up Bridge Road over December and January, thanks to our presenting partner Centre for Projection Art. The town hall will be illuminated with John T. Patten’s Eel Trap; a piece representing Patten’s interests in traditional Koori cultural practices. John Patten is a proud Yorta Yorta and Bundjalung man.

Thursday 15 December – Tuesday 27 December
every night after dusk
at Carlton Library

This year the Carlton Library will also feature projections by the Centre for Projection Art.

Op Shop Christmas Windows

Thursday 8 December – Monday 26 December
at select Sacred Heart Mission and Salvos Stores in Yarra

This year, we’re teaming up with Sacred Heart Mission and Salvos Stores to bring their shop windows to life over the Christmas season. 

Two Sacred Heart Mission stores (Fitzroy and Fitzroy North) and three Salvos Stores (Abbotsford, Richmond and Fitzroy) will create their very own festive landscapes for the whole community to enjoy. Immersive experience and installation designers Skunk Control will collaborate on some of these windows.
