Story Wall at the State Library

Date: All month
Location: State Library

Why stare at a tiny computer or phone screen when you could be watching a gigantic projection the size of a building? Get off your butts and head over to the State Library for an awesome new visual and aural experience, the Story Wall. Thanks to some pretty cool state-of-the-art projection technology, you’ll be able to bear witness to stories told through giant moving images on the very walls of the library’s magnificent façade. The stories are all drawn from the many exhibitions and collections within the library for an after-hours experience that’ll be on every night from sunset to midnight. Find out more
