About the Festival

The Gertrude Street Projection Festival (GSPF).

In 2017 the GSPF celebrated its tenth anniversary of staging inner Melbourne’s most visible and accessible free large scale arts festival. The festival has a long history of presenting programs 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 Centre for Projection Art.

For 2018 the Centre for Projection Art proudly presents Gertrude Street Projection Festival MiNi.  The MiNi Festival will continue to engage the broader community and provide emerging projection artists and local creatives with a platform to experiment and exhibit their work, whilst working with local businesses to light up an important Melbourne location.

The Gertrude Street Projection Festival will continue in 2019. 

2018 exciting year of creative development, community projects and masterclasses. Events and projects will be announced as they are confirmed.
