Stand Together

One of the key aims of Light Nelson was to bring people together; Light Nelson is for the community, by the community.

Everybody in our community.

This project, "Stand Together", was created by a member of the Light Nelson Collective. It "symbolises our defiance in the face of racism and support in particular for our Muslim community but also for anybody who lives in fear because of the colour of their skin, their religion or their culture."

In March this project ran each night on the Nelson City clock tower in the wake of the killings in Christurch and in the lead up to Race Unity Day
