The Library was flooded with bright lights and sweeping soundscapes on Saturday 20 February for White Night Melbourne, a dusk ‘til dawn celebration of culture and creativity across the city.

More than 21,000 stargazers were mesmerised by Ideation in the Dome, a multi-sensory world of interwoven soundscapes and illuminated projections that explored the idea of the library as an ecosystem of imagination. Ideation was a collaboration among four Australian artists: Nick Azidis, Lisa Greenaway, Adem Jaffers, Bentley Dean.

Thousands more White Night revellers descended on the Library forecourt to enjoy Landscaping architecture, an immersive large-scale video installation from artists Amanda Morgan and James HH Morgan. A live music set from DJ JNETT resulted in an impromptu colourful dance party across the steps.
