Marist International Festival

A time to celebrate


When the Pope and his associates were in country for the ‘World Youth Day’ The Sydney Marist Brothers approached us to produce the ‘Marist International Festival’ a program to run alongside ‘World Youth Day’.

The program was to bring together over 700 pilgrims from 39 countries.



We were engaged to produce and deliver a Community Festival experience in the picturesque grounds of Marist Brothers in Mittagong on the NSW South Coast the very next Day the pilgrims were to return to St Josephs College for 5 consecutive days of celebration, prayer, ritual, listening, pilgrimage, engagement and fun.

The team collaborated closely with committee members and worked alongside over 150 volunteers to ensure a seamless integrated program was delivered.

We transformed the grounds of Mittagong into a vibrant sea of colour and movement with hundreds of coloured flags, marquees, stages, screens and entertainment. The event culminated with a spectacular fireworks show.


A truly collaborative and inspiring event, the Marist message was conveyed through technology, art, music, ritual and was an experience that will live on in the hearts and mind of participants for many years to come.
