LUMIERE returns with a spectacular raft of installations and projections to illuminate Durham's buildings, streets and bridges. Local and international artists, lighting designers, and community groups will breathe new light into the city with a breathtaking series of lightworks. This year's festival is certain to be just as popular with artworks sprawling right across the city in a sprinkle of winter magic.
The light creations will range from large-scale projections, to neons, to installations using the latest LEDs, created by artists and lighting designers from near and far including pieces created by artists from the North East as part of the successful Brilliant competition.
LUMIERE is brought to you by registered charity and producers of extraordinary outdoor events Artichoke, and returns to Durham at the invitation of Durham County Council, who were delighted with the success of the two previous LUMIERE festivals in 2009 and 2011. Together, the festivals attracted 225,000 people to the city and generated £5.8 million for the local economy.
