APRIL is the time to shine for the suburb of Heathridge and local residents and youngsters are encouraged to get involved.

Lullaby is a new interactive artwork presented by the City of Joondalup in conjunction with AWESOME Arts.

The brainchild of Luke Jerram, it has been described as “an illuminated, surround-sound artwork for families, delivered through the community, to your door at dusk”.

As a parent, Jerram said he was aware a child’s bedtime was a special and fragile time of day.

Lullaby is the first artwork he has made specifically for young children.

The event will be held this weekend, April 15 and 16.

Participants will decorate their bicycles with neon lights, LEDs and other glowing objects at workshops at Admiral Park from 5pm to 6pm each night, before setting off on a ride through the suburb from 6pm to 7pm.

Riders will be accompanied by the sounds of a lullaby, courtesy of composer Andy Taylor.

The event is free for local families, but only people aged 18 and over can take part in the ride.

Book at www.awesomearts.com/lullaby-joondalup.

Spectators are encouraged to pack a picnic and choose a vantage point along the cycle route to experience the artwork.

The City has contributed $10,000 towards the project.
