Illuminate 2021 - Plymouth responds to the climate crisis
Beginning 15 November 2021, the reimagined Illuminate Light Festival, coordinated by Real Ideas, will run from 5:30pm each night until 28 November, at Ocean Studios in Royal William Yard and the newly refurbished Market Hall in Devonport.
New for 2021, Illuminate will take the form of a two-week programme, in and around Ocean Studios and Market Hall, offering a variety of light art, installations and immersive experiences, for everyone to enjoy, as well as a host of daytime and evening workshops and discussions to participate in.
This year Illuminate responds to COP26 and the international climate crisis with a thoughtful collection of beautiful work from local and national artists. Enjoy projection mapping, bioluminescent artwork, illuminated murals and interactive installations. Alongside beautiful light art installations, Illuminate will also be offering a whole host of immersive dome experiences, workshops, music nights, comedy events and climate focused discussions.
Additionally, as part of this year’s event, Illuminate will host two quiet evenings specifically for people with additional sensory needs and those that find crowded places challenging.
The quiet nights will enable visitors to enjoy Illuminate at their own pace and away from the noise, immerse yourself in beautiful projection mapping, light art installations and sensory play in a stress-free and much less crowded environment. For more information on the quiet evening, visit the Illuminate website.
To deliver this year's event within COVID guidance, Illuminate is operating a timed and ticketed entry system and are working closely with local partners to put on an event that is safe and enjoyable for all.
