Vivid Sydney spotlights humanity for 2024 Festival

Activities to help you plan your Vivid Sydney itinerary this year.
Light installation with blue tones and people interacting. Vivid Sydney.

Vivid Sydney has always been big, especially as it takes on a multi-art form approach – one that is continually expanding. Today the program builds out from its core of ideas, lights and music to include Vivid Food and clustered venue programming at Sydney Opera House – Vivid Live – and Vivid Carriageworks.

With that, a sense of cohesiveness and a theme can become quickly diffused or diluted. So make it broad, and make it connect. Festival Director Gill Minervini announced this week (11 March) that the theme for the 14th Vivid Sydney is ‘Humanity’.
