Over five metres high and with wings that span six metres, the Messenger is back with tidings of peace and unity. This awe-inspiring, futuristic archangel returns, transcending nationality and religion, to spread messages of love and compassion. Highlighting that our similarities are more important than our differences, the Messenger will once again stride through White Night Ballarat aiming to inspire all people, regardless of race, gender, faith, age or orientation.

Brought to life by eight talented puppeteers and performers, the White Knight Messenger draws on light, colour, cross-cultural iconography and human diversity to act as a guardian of the night, overseeing the crowds and ensuring the wows!
