“We are delighted that Epson is such an integral part and key supporter of the 10th Anniversary of the Gertrude Street Projection Festival as we see it as an invitation to artists to create glimpses for and of the future. For ten days over winter, imagine Gertrude Street as a time capsule that explores the social, political and environmental epoch of our times. Drawing on the past and grounded in the present while projecting into the future the GSPF 2017 invites artists to contribute to an immersive, interactive and enchanting experience that ignites our collective social imaginary to explore the possibilities of multiple futures…there are no limits as we unfurl the future.” – Fiona Hillary, 2017 GSPF Curator.
