What is it?
Each year we encourage local businesses to light up in red for the duration of Dark Mofo—not only to show support for the festival but to give festival-goers a warm welcome.
What can I do?
Paint the Town Red! By which we mean go red, use red bulbs, red lanterns, red decorations or whatever red stuff you please to colour your business. Red menus, red drinks, red cakes, raspberry frogs on the pillows…
Anything in it for me?
Glad you asked! Dark Mofo is giving participating businesses a shout out on their website. Registered participants will also be in the running to win two Season Passes for the 2022 Dark Mofo + City of Hobart Winter Feast*. This will be randomly drawn and include all participants.
Businesses will also feature in DST’s marketing through a digital map and blogs to drive visitors to your business and see your activation!
