Vivid is the annual festival of light, music, and ideas held in Sydney, awarded for bringing together light, artists, musicians, and brilliant minds, to share their creativity and transform the city.

Vivid 2022 is now just over 2 months away! After a two-year break, artists and designers are working on their latest and greatest installations showcasing art and lighting installations that are set to grace the streets and harbourside of Sydney. For events like this, structural engineers are responsible for ensuring the structural integrity and safety for a wide a range of installations including outdoor immersive light installations, projections, performances, interactive works and more. Partridge is involved annually in the installation and certification for many of the structures for both Vivid Sydney and Vivid Chatswood.
