For 10 days and 9 nights in May, Bungarribee, a new area in Western Sydney Parklands, will be lit from dusk to dawn by the spectacular floating artwork Sleepers Awake by UK-based artists Ivan and Heather Morison. Co-commissioned by the MCA’s C3West program and Western Sydney Parklands Trust, Sleepers Awake symbolises Bungarribee’s transformation.

Host your own event at Sleepers Awake

Daily at 5.30 pm – 7.30 pm, for the duration of Sleepers Awake at Bungarribee, we will present a smorgasbord of great community based events using this unique artwork as their setting. Consequently, we are seeking events large or small, casual, formal, musical, social, theatrical, celebratory, avant garde, amateur, carnivalesque, birthdays, weddings ceremonies, competitions, fetes, sausage sizzles…whatever!

We will provide a beautiful park, an amazing artwork which provides all night illumination, some stewards, toilets, food trucks, a stage and sound system.
