Beams Festival 2014


Melissa Carey was a part of this year's Beams Festival - her art installation "Weavings of Light" featured handmade macrame hangings using woven recycled t-shirt fabric, and contained handmade lights with tissue paper. The light sculptures illustrated how light and energy are synonymous with community. As they illuminate the streets they depict how an area can only be Utopian or alive with a community of people supporting it. The art installation was located on Little Queen Street. 


BEAMS is a flash in the night of colour, form, movement and sound, descending upon the streets of Chippendale to illuminate the creative talent of Sydney.


This multi-disciplinary arts festival showcased work from the whole spectrum of the arts, with creatives coming together in the hundreds to surge the voltage of ideas and inspiration.

For one night only each September, the cutting-edge curatorial emphasis of BEAMS by the Chippendale Creative Precinct provides a scintillating insight into the minds of Sydney’s best forward-thinking talent.


Wandering through the art-filled laneways of Chippendale, audiences experience a night of communal ‘enlightenment’. Festivaliers also enjoy the opportunity to directly participate through hands-on art-making, workshops and plein air performances.


With strong support from the City of Sydney and major sponsors, the fascinating interplay between art and revitalisation in BEAMS continues to develop each year into a bolder and even more daring highlight of the Sydney event calendar.
