Now or Never Art Trail

Victoria Harbour Promenade Docklands

Thur 17 Aug - Sun 20 Aug

Embark on a wondrous excursion to the world of tomorrow at the Now or Never Art Trail. Spanning 1.2km along the Docklands promenade, this free-to-enjoy, luminous outdoor gallery blurs the boundaries between our physical world and the digital realm.

Curated by cutting-edge arts and technology organisation, Experimenta, the works from visionary Australian and international artists featured along this meandering trail will inspire curiosity, awe and connection. From a never-ending parade of friendly AI-generated monsters to an epic light beam that reaches towards eternity, this magnificent audio-visual journey encourages visitors to contemplate our place in the future.

Set against the backdrop of twinkling city lights above the shimmering harbour, the Now or Never Art Trail is a family-friendly outing. While you’re there enjoy delicious fare from food trucks and refreshing beverages from the on-site Moon Dog Craft Brewery.
