M~M2014 Geelong After Dark

Geelong After Dark was an exciting new event that brought Central Geelong alive with free spontaneous performances, music and extreme art installations from 6:00pm to 10:00pm on Friday 9 May 2014.

More than 6,000 people experienced over 30 pop-up performances, art installations and happenings through the heart of the city and delighted and surprised everyone from dusk through the evening. At 10:00pm at the Geelong Waterfront we greeted the arrival of walkers undertaking the M~M2014 - Geelong’s 24hr extreme arts walk.

The event challenged, inspired and connected audiences with a tantalising slice of Geelong’s vibrant cultural life including:
