foodpro Celebration at THE LUME

The foodpro Celebration at THE LUME was an unmissable evening to celebrate the industry's achievements in an immersive sensory experience. THE LUME is an adventure into art where the walls come alive with light rippled across every surface featuring curated images and a choreographed soundtrack. During foodpro 2023, THE LUME Melbourne was showcasing Connection. 

Connection was born from an idea to celebrate First Peoples’ art and music and give back to their artist communities. Within the brushstrokes and melodies of their art and music, this landmark experience tells the story of our country’s rich and enduring cultural history.

Connection was developed for THE LUME Melbourne by Grande Experiences alongside Adam Knight, Professor Wayne Quilliam and a panel of leading Indigenous cultural advisors including Professor Margo Neale, Rhoda Roberts AO and others. It has been produced with the support of both State and Federal Governments and the National Museum of Australia.

Within Connection, over 110 visual and musical artists converge, coalescing into the most expansive tapestry of First Peoples’ art ever assembled. Across nearly 650 paintings, including 85 significant pieces of original art, emerging voices (such as Sarrita King and Konstantina) dance alongside those of master artists (including Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Tommy Watson), who collectively bring songlines from the remotest regions of this land to life.
