red arcade

Step into another world…

For eleven days the suburban arcade of Watton Plaza will be transformed into a dream-like world filled with curious characters and unexpected spaces, where the familiar becomes strange and a trip to the shops a full-blown adventure.

The floor beneath your feet, the walls...even the windows are full of surprises!

Inside you’ll find a pop-up gallery celebrating local artists and an eclectic program of live music and performances to while away those summer days.

Led by two of Australia’s leading public place artists, Neil Thomas and David Wells, RED ARCADE is full of wonder and fun, a taste of the surreal in our suburban streets.

Proudly brought to you by Wyndham City’s Arts and Culture program.
