Exhibition to light up city canvas

MATHERS Place in Hobart will be transformed on Friday 31 March as young artists project their work on to nearby walls and other surfaces as part of the Light up the Lane festival.

Running from 6.30pm until 9.30pm, the festival features illuminated pieces from young artists aged between 12 and 25-years working in all mediums, ranging in size from an entire building to a small screen.

The festival is the Hobart City Council’s contribution to National Youth Week and also includes performances from local young musicians, DJs and dancers.

Food vans will be on site for this family-friendly drug and alcohol-free event, which includes a small screening room.

Light up the Lane is organised by the council’s Youth Arts and Recreation Centre, which offers regular creative workshops and spaces at its Collins Street drop-in centre.
