WELCOME BACK!

 
 
BEAMS IS CELEBRATING ITS 5TH YEAR!
 

BEAMS is the jewel of the Chippendale Creative Precinct's yearly calendar.

Flashes of colour, form, movement and sound awaken the streets of Chippendale to illuminate the kaleidoscope of creative talents for a spectacular evening of fun and frivolity on Saturday 17 September 5pm - 10pm!

Showcasing an array of visual and performance artists, animators, artisans, architects, bespoke crafters, designers, production companies, creative contemplators and creative agencies. This event dazzles our audience of 22,000+ local, national and international visitors putting Chippendale on the map.

BEAMS forges a union between creative business, art institutions and the wider Sydney community. A bright night of communal ‘enlightenment’, festivaliers enjoy the opportunity to directly interact with hands-on art making, workshops and plein air performances.

With the generosity of City of Sydney, Frasers Property Australia and Sekisui House, we continually develop this event into a bold and exciting highlight to Sydney’s creative calendar.

SPIRIT

 
 
SPIRIT INVIGORATES THE CREATIVE COMMUNITIES & SPACES WE THRIVE IN.
 

BEAMS 2015 - Photography by David Clare

 

Spirit is the theme that will be embraced by BEAMS 2016. The Spirit of Chippendale is one that glimmers in the darkness. From industrial beginnings, Chippendale has emerged luminous and ready to take on a new age where the spirit of both people and place burn brightly together.

Artists: As BEAMS 2016 Spirit brings light to the world of art during one bright night in September, manifest a creation that fulfills the spirit of oneself and those around you.

Be inspired by the full creative brief here.

We are calling for creatives working in all media and disciplines, but in light of the participatory nature of the festival, we highly encourage the submissions of works that engage and interact with the flâneurs and milieu of Chippendale. Get involved! Check out the laneways and think about the engagement of your work within the context of the urban environs. Residents and local businesses will be approached to support your vision.

Creatives are free to propose works across all disciplines including: installation, visual and site specific, dance, performance, live music, film, multimedia & interactive, light, animation as well as workshops, ideas & talks. Our distinguished curatorial team will be selecting based on the quality of proposals and supporting documentation.
