Christmas celebrations in Melbourne

Snow in the middle of the hot Melbourne summer? See it with your own eyes as part of Fed Square’s free Christmas program, Spirit of the Square!

 

Melbourne-based design outfit, SIBLING will transform The Square with Whiteout, an installation of large, snow-white, spheres that will pop up throughout The Square, creating an immersive and interactive landscape. 

 

Whiteout is a playful take on the snowy imagery often seen in cinema and TV during the festive season and it will become backdrop to a daily program of free events.

 

The program of events includes festive films, Big Screen Gaming, live music and a resident illustrator who will capture your merriment in sketches for you to take home! 

 

There will also be an Orphans’ Christmas on 25 December for fellow Christmas exiles or families looking for a fun place to spend the day. Pull up a deck chair and watch a movie marathon on the Big Screen or take part in a series of games and activities for all ages to enjoy.
