LightNight At Home 15 May 2020

LightNight At Home will take place next week in place of the usual annual cultural event which happens around the city.

From 5pm on Friday 15 May LightNight invite you to follow #LightNightatHome and join in an online exploration of work by many of the artists and organisations who had so much planned for the festival this year.

Fittingly the theme for the festival this year is Home, and it feels all the more important now. Home is a space, a memory, a feeling – what will Home mean when we emerge from this crisis?

The communal real-life experience of LightNight is its biggest strength and although the team cannot replicate this online, they see Friday 15 May as a chance for us all to champion and celebrate what the arts mean to us all. Whilst we are all withdrawing into our homes, let’s reconnect online for an evening of sharing, creativity and solidarity.
