Docklands to glow

29 Jun 2017

Docklands to glow Image

Docklands will shine this winter with the Winter Glow Festival activating the precinct from June 28 to August 23.

The pilot program by the City of Melbourne aims to compensate for the 11 per cent decline in pedestrian traffic in winter and boost Docklands’ popularity after its loss of the weekly winter fireworks.

The eight-week festival will feature four streams, including art, progressive dinners, workshops and talks.

Two interactive 3D artworks will be installed in Victoria Harbour on June 28.

The Glow Progressive Dinners include four dinner events, each held across three local businesses in one night.

Participating Docklands businesses for the progressive dinners are: Saluministi, Banoi, Tap831, Black Cod, Watermark, Wawa Chocolatier, Woolshed, Mama Rumaan, Mill & Bakery, Cargo, Berth and Bopha Devi.

The workshops will take place at seven locations in Docklands throughout the festival and range from a 3D printing class to a comedy night at global phenomenon Dialogue in the Dark.

Four free talks will be held at Library at the Dock, inviting guest speakers such as Father Bob Maguire, The Age’s fashion editor Melissa Singer, the founding chef of Feast of Merit and the founders of some of Melbourne’s most successful social start-ups.

Glow Festival will be complemented by the Docklands Firelight Festival from June 30 to July 2, which will light up the harbour with fireworks, music and sculpture burns.
