Brookfield Winter Lights Festival
July 19, 2017 - July 29, 2017
125 St Georges Terrace, Perth

The highly anticipated Brookfield Winter Lights Festival is back for its fifth year and is bigger than ever!

The Festival is a journey of art and light transforming Brookfield Place Perth through spectacular light installations, projections, exhibitions, interactive events and performances by local, national and international artists.

Festival highlights include projections on the heritage buildings along St Georges Terrace along with an interactive Mr B, a real time 3-D animated character. A stunning light totem with laser cut stencils will illuminate Brookfield walkways, casting literature in light onto the rear of the Heritage building and roving performances, Fliptease and Nightnorns, will weave through the festival precinct adding interest and fun while engaging with crowds.

For the first time in WA, Digital Wattle, the award winning mesmerizing installations by New Zealand artist Angus Muir, will feature light trees that interact with people moving past them. While Spectrum, another installation by Angus Muir is a hands-on interactive activation where visitors are encouraged to push illuminated tubes to make them change position and color.

Hungry March Band



The Mistletones

The Mistletones, a holiday a cappella quartet, have been spreading cheer for the past 10 years! With an upbeat, fun and festive feel, their music ranges from classic carols to modern holiday songs with arrangements that have a contemporary sound.


Hungry March Band

Hungry March Band fuses street band tradition with raw power and performance art antics. The band’s huge sound links traditional big band with free jazz and connects the sonic space between punk rock and global brass. This is what it looks like when the majorettes go AWOL, team up with the band geeks and throw an after-hours costumed dance party in the town square.


Members of New York City Gay Men’s Chorus

New York City Gay Men’s Chorus is a world-class, world-renowned New York institution and a pioneering voice for the LGBTQ community. Together, talented singers of various ages, backgrounds, and experiences produce a vibrant sound and energy that audiences can feel and connect with. Through the power of this sound and spectacular performances, the NYCGMC are fearless champions for love, equality, and acceptance.

Heartstreets in Concert
December 1, 2016
First Canadian Place, Toronto

Heartstreets – the Montreal duo whose sound blends hip hop, R&B, and soul – go way back. Meeting first at nine years old, Gab Godon and Emma Beko immediately bonded over music. “We used to do hip-hop choreography together for shows in elementary school,” Beko has said. “Then in high school, we would sing on the bus and stuff like that.”

Fast forward fifteen years and Godon and Beko have released their debut EP, You and I, to much acclaim. In “Crawling South,” the first single released from the EP, Godon’s sultry voice comes together perfectly with Beko’s rap-style storytelling to reflect on a relationship that came apart. The heartbreaker, which charted at number six on Spotify’s Viral 50 Chart, was released with a video showing the heartbroken sifting through a “break-up box” of memorabilia. Complex said of the song that it “mirrors that gut-wrenching feeling of blowing the dust off the top of that box, and digging into a trove of memories, good and bad, like some kind of wistful relationship archaeologist.”


Mural by Juan Pineda
Open through 2017
October 13, 2016 - December 31, 2017
Three Bethesda Metro Center, Bethesda

Arts Brookfield, together with Bethesda Urban Partnership, has commissioned Juan Pineda, a Washington, D.C. artist, to create a new public art mural at Bethesda Metro Center. The project is part of the second installment of “Paint the Town,” an initiative to promote more public art murals in downtown Bethesda.

Judges from Bethesda Arts & Entertainment District and Arts Brookfield chose Juan from a pool of 50 talented local artists. Juan’s concept for the mural features bold, interlocking patterns and colors that will transform the plaza and create a vibrant passageway from downtown Bethesda to the Metro; a captivating piece of public art that highlights the community’s commitment to the arts.


PUBLIC DEDICATION: Thursday, October 13 | 10:30 AM



Juan Pineda has been painting murals in the greater Washington, D.C. area since the mid-1990’s. His distinct style, often characterized as urban-contemporary, can be seen in his murals in Crystal City/WeWork, Petworth, Howard University, Adams Morgan and elsewhere. Pineda received the Proclamation Award from the City of Hyattsville for his mural, “In Memory of Freddy.” He also specializes in restoration and preservation of public work and was recognized by the The Washington Post for restoring the only remaining outdoor Latino mural in Adams Morgan entitled, “A People without Murals is a Demuralized People.”

Each swing represents one of four instruments—piano, harp, guitar, vibraphone—and triggers sound when participants swing back and forth. As certain melodies emerge through cooperation between players, The Swings fosters a sense of community and ownership of public space.

Created by Daily tous les jours, a Montreal-based design studio with a focus on participation and collective experience, the original 21 Swings new media art installation has attracted millions to the Quartier des spectacles area in Montreal, where each swing is swung an average of 8,500 times daily. A proven track record for encouraging collaborations and sparking conversation between strangers, The Swings bring vibrancy to an empty space by encouraging people of all ages and backgrounds to gather and experiment.

The Swings was made possible with generous support from the Counseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ).


Waiver rules: 

  • Anyone who enters The Swings area must sign a waiver or have a parent/guardian sign for them.
  • A parent/guardian must sign a waiver for anyone under 18 years of age.
