Situated on the MediaCityUK Piazza, Mini Burble will light up the night sky for five nights while audiences explore their inner-creativity and paint the sculpture in a mass collaborative effort. Their interaction with the artwork will trigger animated colours and set vivid patterns flowing across the 300 balloons' surface.
Mini Burble will be launched at 9pm on Tuesday 14th July, and will then show twice every evening: first between 5:00pm - 7:30pm (non-illuminated), and then between 9:00pm - 10:30pm (illuminated).
Special Events - free, no booking required (unless specified)
