Unfurling futures… The 10th Anniversary of the Gertrude Street Projection Festival is an invitation to artists to create glimpses for and of the future. For ten days over winter, imagine Gertrude Street as a time capsule that explores the social, political and environmental epoch of our times. Drawing on the past and grounded in the present while projecting into the future the GSPF 2017 invites artists to contribute to an immersive, interactive and enchanting experience that ignites our collective social imaginary to explore the possibilities of multiple futures…there are no limits as we unfurl the future.
– Fiona Hillary, 2017 GSPF Curator

The Gertrude Street Projection Festival (GSPF).
In 2016 the GSPF celebrated its ninth year of staging inner Melbourne’s most visible and accessible free large scale arts festival.
The festival presents a program of dynamic projection art projects that lets us see familiar spaces and buildings in new, inspired ways. It’s a collaborative, volunteer effort of artists and traders, residents and community groups all brought together by The Gertrude Projection Association.
For 10 evenings in July and in over 38 sites, the length of Gertrude Street in Fitzroy is illuminated by the visions of talented projections artists for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Buildings, laneways, footpaths and tree trunks light up with site-specific, curated projections. The Festival’s diverse arts program celebrates and connects our diverse community.
