Insight into White Night

08 Dec 2016

Insight into White Night Image

New White Night artistic director David Atkins gave local business stakeholders an exciting insight into next year’s festival at last month’s Yarra River Business Association (YRBA) luncheon.

With a resume boasting a whole host of major events including the Sydney Olympic opening and closing ceremonies, the newly-appointed artistic director provided an impressive presentation about what the city could expect.

Presenting at the luncheon at Arts Centre Melbourne on November 25, Mr Atkins said local businesses could expect the Yarra River precinct to be a major part of the festival.

While he said the water itself wouldn’t play host to installations, he said businesses could expect a number of attractions along Southbank and Northbank, as well as a special installation underneath Princes Bridge.

Mr Atkins also said a large proportion of the schedule would soon be made available on the White Night website.

The presentation topped off what was another successful YRBA member’s event, with more than 50 attending the association’s final luncheon of 2016.

The YRBA will host its first luncheon for 2017 in February, which will feature a guest speaker from council who will provide insight into a major Southbank project.
