Van Gogh Alive comes to Canberra as part of Enlighten Festival 2022, thanks to Grande Experiences.

Van Gogh’s works have been displayed and enjoyed worldwide for over a century – but never like this. For a limited time only, audiences will have the unique opportunity to fully experience Van Gogh’s artistry and truly immerse themselves in his world. From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound, and fragrance that has been described as an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience.
