The ANU campus will come to life over five thrilling nights with vibrant projections, special food stalls and entertainment.
Start the Enlighten walking trail at the ANU School of Music - while your ears appreciate the sounds of music, enjoy a beverage from Wig & Pen's extensive range of local wines, beers and ciders or excellent English pub food including burgers, bangers and mash and cheese platters. Then head through the School of Art & Design, past the Hedley Bull building to the Menzies Library to University House.
See the campus history come to life through original archival footage, fly through projections of the solar system and open your mind to the wonders of the creative arts through illumination. There will be activities, public lectures, exhibitions, refreshments and events on every night so look out for the program.
