Accessibility

While every effort has been made to make the Glow Winter Arts Festival 2022 as accessible and inclusive as possible, the nature of the festival sites being outdoor in winter means some areas may be difficult to access.  

The following information may help when planning a visit to Glow Winter Arts Festival: 

The Glow Winter Arts Festival is a low light event. At most locations across Central Park and Prahran Square, standard lighting will be in place, with some exceptions necessary to protect the full illuminated potential of the artworks. 

Prahran Square Site Information 

  • There are accessible parking bays in the 24-hour car park facility which is located directly below the parkland. Both levels of the car park are accessible by travelator and lift from Wattle and Cato Streets. A lift is also located on the Terrace. 

  • The immersive installation Now Breathe is located in the ‘Urban Forest’ section of Prahran Square. Now Breathe can be enjoyed by following the concrete path through the forest. The path is accessible from the main area of Prahran Square or from the underground carpark entrance on Izett Street. 

  • When accessed through Prahran Square, the path will take visitors through the installations on an ascending slope. 

  • When accessed through the underground carpark entrance on Izett Street, the path will take visitors through a descending slope. 

  • The nature of the site means that wet weather may impact access to the installation.  

  • The latest weather information and other updates will be posted on our social media channels. 

  • Public and accessible toilets are located on the Terrace (eastern side) of Prahran Square.

Central Park Site information 

  • The installations Cautionary Note, Monolith, Sky Castle and Taking Flight are located in open grassed areas throughout the south side of Central Park.  

  • The nature of the site means the weather can impact access to the artworks up close, however, the installations will be viewable from the pathways throughout the gardens. 

  • The installation The Overbloom is located at the fountain at Central Park, accessible via stairs. The Overbloom can be enjoyed from vantage points at the two entry areas without having to navigate the stairs.  

  • In previous festivals, wet weather has created some issues for people using wheelchairs and/or prams across the grass. 

  • The latest weather information and other updates will be posted on our social media channels.  

  • An accessible toilet will be available on site.
