Concept

Light Nelson Event is set to brighten up the winter with an outdoor gallery of brilliant light installations, clustered around the lily pond and massive trees of the city’s historic Queens Gardens, Albion Square, and into the NMIT campus.

In a collaboration of art, science and technology, many artists have let their creativity loose through a range of innovative media including laser technology, digital imagery, performance and music with high levels of interaction and surprise for the viewer.

Light Nelson will be staged for the fouth time in 2018. It’s an irresistible mix: a garden walk in the clear dark night of winter with magic moments of illusion, beauty, interaction and fun.

The vision for the Light Nelson Event is to become a bi-ennial feature on the Nelson calendar – boldly standing out in winter as a beacon for the local community and visitors alike. To ensure we are able to attract the whole community – admission is free.
