Sydney Olympic Park joins global Purple Light Up Movement

29 Nov 2020

Sydney Olympic Park will glow with purple light displays on iconic buildings and monuments on Thursday 3 December for International Day of People with Disability.

 

The global movement Purple Light Up aims to celebrate and draw attention to the contribution of the 386 million employees around the world living with disability. 

 

When night hits the Olympic Cauldron, the Sprinter monument towering near the M4 Motorway, ANZ Stadium, Pullman and Novotel hotels, the Olympic train station and the iconic Olympic Boulevard Light Towers will be alight purple.

 

The light display is one of a range of activities at Sydney Olympic Park that will mark International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) on 3 December and raise awareness about access and inclusion for public spaces, venues and communities.
