LUMA is an award-winning arts and culture festival based
in Queenstown, and we're asking for your support to bring our
travelling artists to the Fesitval.
Taking place on June 2nd - 5th 2017, LUMA is back to light up
Queenstown Gardens, with pop-up events held around the town centre
and an art walk on the Marine Parade. Last year, the free festival
spanned three evenings of illuminated art, light sculptures and
entertainment. As well as pieces from Angus Muir, TomTom, SILO, and
a sculpture trail curated by Toi O Tahuna, we celebrated the
creativity of the art community, both local and international, with
live music, performances and an outdoor cinema.
LUMA17 is almost here and the LUMA team has gathered a
larger group of participants than ever before to deliver a
brighter, more exciting light festival to Queenstown Gardens for
Queens Birthday Weekend. LUMA is a completely free event and all of
our funding comes from trusts, local government and local small
businesses collaborating to build a family-friendly creative
showcase for four days in the deep south.
We are looking for supporters who can help us to
ensure our budget can sustain the cost of travel for our artists
and their support teams - this includes flights for people
and equipment but also some of the smaller details like hiring
trailers and moving stuff around whilst we build the event. By
making a donation to our Boosted campaign, you are lending a
helping hand to the growth of the event.
It's a huge project and it involves many people, all of whom
have given up a large amount of time over the last year to bring
LUMA17 would love you to come on
board. Every dollar counts as LUMA draws near and we nail
down the final details. We already have an amazing group of
supporters and we thank them for their continued partnership and
their contributions of time and energy. You guys are amazing - you
know who you are…
Thanks for your support! Please share our Boosted
campaign with your friends and networks - our event relies
on the generous support of the community.
The LUMA crew look forward to welcoming the Queenstown
community and all visitors to the Gardens this year wherever you
may be coming from.
