Rave review for a “dream” installation

The world-renowned interactive public art installation, Sky Castle by ENESS, is a spectacular new addition to the Dubbo DREAM Festival 2022; with funding from the NSW Government through the Reconnecting Regional NSW Community Events program.

Since Friday 23 September, the Sky Castle installation has been shining from the Heritage Plaza in front of the Old Dubbo Gaol and has already been visited by thousands of people.

“The Sky Castle installation is an incredible addition to this year’s DREAM festival and something our region has never seen before. Since the Sky Castle installation has been in situ, we have seen around 24,000 people come to enjoy the experience. It is great to be able to partner with the NSW government and local businesses to organize these kinds of events and activities for our community,” said Murray Wood, CEO of Dubbo Regional Council (DRC ).

Dubbo Constituency Member Dugald Saunders said it was great to partner with the council, Kintyre Heights and NextGen Civil to bring the world famous facility to Dubbo.

“It’s great to see Dubbo CBD ‘turn out’ this school holiday,” Mr Saunders said.

“Sky Castle is an amazing sight for people of all ages and I encourage everyone to come and experience this wonderful interactive installation!”

The colorful installation will be accessible 24/7, free to the public from Friday September 23 to Sunday October 9 inclusive, at the Heritage Plaza outside the Old Dubbo Gaol before it moves to Victoria Park to join the lineup event of the Dubbo DREAM Festival from Thursday 13 to Sunday 23 October.

Dubbo Regional Council Regional Events Manager Kim Hague is delighted that Sky Castle by ENESS has been so popular with the community and visitors. “We have received countless positive comments from the community who have already experienced the installation, so I encourage everyone to bring their friends and family to see the incredible display of light, form and sound.” Ms Hague said. “While the interactive temporary art installation is live 24 hours a day, the most popular time for the installation is between 5 and 8 p.m. when the sun goes down and the arches show their true colors. is a perfect event for photos with friends and family.” said Mrs. Hague

Kintyre Heights local sponsor and NextGen Civil Brett Anderson said he was grateful to be part of the Sky Castle initiative.

“The cultural, social and economic value of a region increases exponentially through public art and the great thing about public art is that it is freely accessible to everyone.

We value partnerships with the Council and state government to achieve cumulative benefits for our businesses and the broader community. The sound of all the children laughing and playing has brought a lot of joy to our family, which we are grateful for,” Mr. Anderson said.
