Light Nelson is a year-round project culminating in a two-yearly event celebrating the diversity, talent, generosity, ingenuity and community spirit of the people of Nelson.

The city has embraced Light Nelson, it puts a little bit of magic into people’s lives in the mid-winter. As a community, we can’t underestimate the importance of people coming out to share an experience and to talk to each other; or the opportunity for absolutely everyone to engage with the arts. Light Nelson 2016 charmed and enthralled 55,000 people but Light Nelson is far more than an art exhibition, it's an opportunity to do something for our community and to learn or share skills.
