LUX, in partnership with Massey University and Wellington City Council, is a city-wide celebration of light, space and interaction. Composed of a symposium, exhibition programme and events, LUX is a winter festival for Wellington.

About this project

Wellington LUX 2013 is well on its way to being realised for this year with 17 artworks being displayed over four days around the city centre. This will be accompanied by a two-day symposium taking place in the City Gallery and a BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) night.

We want LUX to be an iconic annual event for Wellington city. It has the potential to create a vibrant community based experience that will brighten up the winter nights, and at a large enough scale could be of significant economic benefit to the region. The Vivid Light Festival in Sydney is an example of what can be achieved.

With the generous financial support of Wellington City Council and Massey University we are delighted to be hosting a number of very special designers at the festival this year, but we want to make this a truly spectacular event. With your additional assistance we would like to extend our programme, exhibiting more artists and offering more events for the community to enjoy in this celebration of light in the darkness of mid winter.


Please help light up Wellington in June.
