EnLighten

EnLighten is coming! 

ART . LIGHT . CONNECT

The new Eaton skatepark is set to come alive on the evening of 19 March 2022, as the Shire of Dardanup, in partnership with Illuminart, presents the digital art installation ‘EnLighten’.

EnLighten will see Eaton’s local skatepark become a canvas for creative expression. Exciting projection technology will transform the concrete forms into an immersive digital landscape.

Through playful exploration of light the goal is to shed light on mental health by encouraging people to explore our focus question ‘What brightens your mood?’.

The free event is suitable for all ages, bookings are not required. Food and drink options, and entertainment will accompany the display ensuring it will be an experience to remember.

We need your contributions to make EnLighten shine!

We are calling on people of all ages to take part in EnLighten by answering our focus question:

‘What brightens your mood?’

Your contributions will form the basis of the installation and what will evolve will be a captivating display of images, words and artworks encouraging us to think about mental health.

Your response to the focus question ‘What brightens your mood?’ can be expressed through a few simple words, images, videos, drawings, poems or artworks. How you choose to respond is up to you. We just ask that you ensure you have permission to use any images/video content you include. Your contributions will be reproduced for public viewing so we will not accept any inappropriate content.
