Christmas projections are lighting up Geelong’s City Hall for the festive season

City Hall will be lit up once again this year with festive projections to awe onlookers.

Stunning Christmas-themed projections are once again lighting up City Hall this festive season as part of Christmas In Geelong.

Officially launching on November 12 as part of the Christmas In Geelong opening night, the 2022 Christmas projections on Geelong’s City Hall this year will feature a specially commissioned contemporary festive celebration of visual splendour.

Taking inspiration from the tradition Christmas giving and the gesture of wrapping and unwrapping, the projections will feature designs and musical compositions inspired by our region’s rich and diverse community.

Experienced multimedia artist Georgie Pinn is behind this year’s exciting projections, with contributions from Ian de Gruchy and Olaf Meyer. The City selected Multimedia Events to produce its first Christmas display, which utilises City Hall’s professional sound and light projection system.

The 12-minute display will run nightly from 8:30pm until 11:30pm until 8 January 2023. As the summer days lengthen in December, the show is best experienced from 9pm.

In addition to seeing the projections live in-person, community members will also have the opportunity to watch the full show on the Christmas in Geelong page.

“The festive projections will see City Hall come alive with playful designs and a sense of wonder for Christmas this year,” says Mayor Peter Murrihy.

“The animations on Gheringhap Street always create an electric atmosphere in Central Geelong and put the community in the festive spirit.

“Off the back of captivating projections for White Night, NAIDOC Week, Reconciliation Week and ANZAC Day, this special commission will cement our region’s reputation of curating and presenting exceptional public art experiences.”
