Maybe you wandered through its dessert museum, which did the rounds of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Perhaps you got festive at its Melbourne Christmas pop-up. Or, you could've been looking forward to its sweets-themed resort in regional Victoria. Whichever category you fall into, you'd know that vibrant colours and fun installations are firmly on Sugar Republic's agenda. In fact, even if you've only ever looked at pictures of its previous projects, you'd still know that.

So, it should come as no surprise that brightly hued art is on the bill once again — as part of the Sugar Republic team's latest venture. Called the Sugar Republic Rainbow Walk, it's a pop-up exhibition that's taken over Melbourne's underground Campbell Arcade. And, in line with the current times, it's dedicated to messages of resilience and positivity, while also pondering how we might all imagine a better future after what we've been going through.

Running below Degraves and Flinders Streets, and making ample use of the site's 50s-era, pink-tiled surroundings, the Rainbow Walk features 12 installations set against colour-blocked backgrounds. Think rubber ducks, mirror balls, fluorescent tubes, a wall of post-its and more, with more than 95 percent of materials repurposed from previous installations.

The Rainbow Walk is also free, so you can wander through without paying a cent. It's on display until Friday, July 31, open every day except Sundays.
