Local artist Matt Bonner has come up with an exciting new Christmas projection display for City Hall. The building’s Gheringhap Street façade will come alive in an animated light show that will delight both young and old. Matt, who studied graphic design and multimedia at the Gordon TAFE, has an impressive resume. He’s developed projection displays at well-known events including Geelong After Dark, White Night Ballarat and Big Day Out.


Matt was also behind the ANZAC Centenary and Reconciliation Week projections on City Hall. This year’s theme will follow the journey of the Christmas star, evoking a sense of wonder and beauty and celebrating the magic of Christmas. Watch in awe as the star weaves behind and in front of City Hall’s columns, then disappears and remerges from the building’s windows. Stars will twinkle, snow will fall, the building’s columns will magically transform into candy canes and children’s Christmas wishes and dream sequences will
be played out in a spectacular display.

The City Hall projections will run nightly from 9.00pm – midnight staring 10 November and finishing on 7 January. For 10 November only, projections start at 9.30pm.
