Expressions of Interest are now open for Vivid Sydney 2022 under a creative vision – ‘The Soul of Sydney’.

The vision will inform all submissions across the Light, Music and Ideas programs as well as a new Cross Art Form category.

“Vivid Sydney warms the soul of our city with light artists, music makers and brilliant thinkers,” said Tourism Minister Stuart Ayres.

“Vivid Sydney is an exceptional event that captures the uniqueness, vibrancy and imagination of the city and makes it a must-visit destination during winter for art, culture and event enthusiasts alike.

“This is a great opportunity for all creative industries in Australia and around the world, to be part of a global event and shine together with Sydney.”

Creators from around the world are encouraged to share unexpected stories that will engage, inspire and excite audiences, drawing inspiration from Sydney’s hidden spaces, architecture, global icons, people, food, music and ideas.

“Now more than ever, it’s important to create opportunities for connection and to celebrate our great city,” said festival director Gill Minervini.

“Vivid Sydney is authentically Sydney, but it’s genuinely global. Inspired by ‘The Soul of Sydney’ creative direction, we challenge artists to share their stories about Sydney and how it aligns with other great cities around the world, driving change through creativity, identifying what brings us together and celebrating the beauty of our diversity.”
