That’s the desire for White Night Melbourne – the first event of its kind in Australia – a dusk-till-dawn celebration of music, art, dining, theatre, sport, fashion, film, design and performance which will see many of the city’s streets turned into pedestrian thoroughfares from 7pm to 7am on Saturday 23 February 2013.

White Night Melbourne is part of an internationally renowned phenomenon that began in Paris. It is the first event of its kind in Australia, with Melbourne joining 23 other global cities.
The city will be transformed into an all-night wonderland with over 80 free events. And RMIT Gallery is taking part with a special street art performance – Animating Laneways.
Animating Laneways will be unveiled as part of White Night Melbourne's Outer Limits event.

A moving storyboard will be projected onto the laneway behind RMIT’s bookshop, intended to promote a safe and vibrant thoroughfare for the growing population of students in the area.

The Gallery has developed a stop-motion animation with three of Melbourne’s highly visible and experienced street artists Ghostpatrol, Miso and Twoone and design animation studio Oh Yeah Wow. Additional painters Al stark, and Max Berry added to the surrounding walls.

Join us as we switch on the projection and celebrate with a live performance by The Cheeky Falcon band, which play alternative lowbrow pop. The laneway – which goes by the official name “Cl0112” – will never look – or sound – so good.

WHAT: RMIT Gallery Animated Laneways for White Night Melbourne
WHEN: Saturday 23 February 2013.
TIME: 7 pm official opening. The Cheeky Falcon band will perform from 7.30 – 8.30 pm
WHERE: The laneway off Little la Trobe Street, behind the RMIT Gallery Bookshop. (see map)

NOTE: Restaurants and bars will keep their doors open to provide extra-special encounters in this nocturnal journey. You will be able to find plenty to eat and drink, and restroom facilities are available in Melbourne Central, located across the road.
