Campbelltown murals enter augmented reality at Fisher’s Ghost
Published on 18 September 2023
Residents looking to learn more about public art in Campbelltown’s CBD will soon get the chance to chance to explore each work through augmented reality as part of the ARt After Dark Trail at the Festival of Fisher’s Ghost.
Funded by the NSW Government’s Culture Up Late Western Sydney program and serving as a collaboration between Council and Campbelltown Arts Centre, the augmented reality trail allows participants to learn about five key public artworks across Campbelltown through QR codes on their mobile devices.
The grant program aims to drive visitation to Western Sydney CBDs after 5pm, through art and cultural offerings developed by local creatives in community precincts.
“This augmented reality trail is a great opportunity for locals and visitors to our community to learn more about the amazing public art on display in our CBD by accessing the trail on their phone,” said Mayor George Greiss.
“I strongly encourage everyone to get together with their family and friends during the festival and take time to explore the many wonderful artworks our CBD has to offer,” Dr Greiss said.
The five artworks featured in the ARt After Dark Trail include:
- Forum Q by Feras Shaheen
- Raw Undoings by Danielle Mate
- Three Mobs by Jason Wing
- Spinning the Fire Sutra by Savanhdary Vongpoothorn
- Breathing Life by Victoria Garcia
ARt After Dark Trail guided tours will be offered on Saturday 4 November as part of Fisher’s Twilight Fair. Tour participants will receive a map of the trail, a list of Fred’s favourite nearby eateries, and more details about the project.
This initiative is proudly supported by the NSW Government through the Culture Up Late Western Sydney program.
