Light Up Poole
Light Up Poole, the annual festival of digital light art, is set to return in February with three nights of extraordinary light spectacles and community events that will transform the town after dark.
More than 40,000 visitors experienced last year’s incredible displays and for Light Up Poole 2020 organisers are extending the light up time and expanding the programme with talks, workshops and ticketed events including a family rave.
Funded by Arts Council England and main sponsor Poole BID, with additional contributions from BCP Council and private businesses, Light Up Poole will run from 20 to 22 February and showcase the work of local, emerging and international artists with a series of newly created digital light art installations and projections as well as creative participation events that encourage visitors to make their own work that casts Poole in a new light.
Light Up Poole is presented by Audacious, the community interest company dedicated to delivering high quality, accessible experiences that enable people to engage with light as a creative medium.
This year Light Up Poole artists are responding to the theme ‘Spectrum’ with work that addresses diversity in terms of age, faith, social exclusion and migration.
