Brisbane Lights Up for G20 Summit
Back to blog homepageJune 12th, 2014 | Meriton Apartments
A dazzling light display will illuminate Brisbane’s buildings when thousands of delegates and media converge on the Queensland capital for the G20 summit in November.
State premier Campbell Newman said the arts and culture will be a key plank of the city’s promotion during this globally important meeting.
The light show will run for 17 nights leading up to the summit opening on November 15, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
Not only can people enjoy the spectacle, they can even interact with the colours on the buildings, said creative director Jono Perry. Perry designed last year’s City of Lights display during the Brisbane Festival.
He said he hoped people would ask “What colour is Brisbane tonight?”.
Buildings across the city will carry the lights, including Parliament House.
Community-based celebrations will take place not just in the city but throughout the suburbs, said Arts Minister Ian Walker.
Cairns will figure in cultural celebrations too, when the G20 finance ministers meet there in September.
