Bring LUMA to Life!
With LUMA19 fast approaching, the creative team behind this
annual sensory experience are asking supporters to help enhance the
live performance components we've been working on all year.
Interaction is at the heart of what we do and we're looking for
some extra funds to bring LUMA to life.
We'll be providing new and exciting live experiences from
aerialists, performance pieces, musicians, and live immersive art.
We are very proud to be collaborating this year with the Remarkable
Theatre company, Wakatipu Conservatoire of Classical Ballet, Dance
Plant, as well as other amazing performers and entertainers. We are
also excited to welcome back the Fairies, as part of the Flame

LUMA is held over Queen's Birthday Weekend delivering a curated
collection of light sculptures, art, performances and
installations. Last year LUMA Southern Light Project welcomed over
50,000 visitors to the Queenstown Gardens.
LUMA is a community, a collective, a family of doers, creatives
and visionaries with the shared mission to create an immersive
nightscape. Over the last 4 years we have worked to create an
accessible, world-class, public event which engages our community
and our partners to explore the connection between art, technology
and design through the medium of light.
Governed by a not-for-profit charitable trust and free to the
public, the festival won the 2016 Trustpower Regional Award for
Arts and Culture, and in 2017 won the Supreme Winner for our
Region. Our vision for LUMA is to build a world-class art festival
based on strong local support and integration. It's our aim to
bring our entire community along for the ride.
Thanks so much for your support!
