An annual event inspired by light and artistic expression is returning to downtown Vancouver in November.

Lumiere is a series of interactive art installations that lights up three iconic locations throughout the city:

  • English Bay
  • Jim Deva Plaza
  • šxʷƛ̓ənəq Xwtl’e7énḵ Square, formerly known as the North Plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery

This year, Lumiere will feature 17 public artworks created by local and international artists.

The event will also expand to the šxʷƛ̓ənəq Xwtl’e7énḵ Square, with seven interactive
installations to help celebrate the arrival of Daylight Savings Time.

Lumiere kicks off on Friday, November 2, and runs until Sunday, November 4, 2018, in all
three locations.
