LUMINOUSflux projection onto Winthrop Hall

LUMINOUSnight is a one-night celebration of art and culture to commemorate The University of Western Australia’s centenary (1913-2013).

The UWA Crawley campus is widely acknowledged as the most beautiful university campus in Australia and one of the most beautiful in the world.

From 7pm until midnight on Friday 8 February 2013, it will be transformed into a walk-through gallery and performance space, hosting a continous program of performances, displays and installations - a delight of light, art and history.

This free public event coincides with the opening of the 2013 Perth International Arts Festival and the first night of the University’s Centenary Alumni Weekend.
