Lumière: Contemporary Art . Unconventional Spaces

Next week for the second year in a row, Cape Breton will be the scene of some spectacular arts and culture. Now… arts and culture certainly aren't new to Cape Breton since we're known all over the world for our art, culture and music… but Lumière puts a whole new spin on things!

A free annual night time celebration of the arts, Lumière takes audience engagement to new levels. For one night only, the festival transforms downtown Sydney into a nucleus of creativity, bringing together theatre, dance, music, visual art and fine craft for one and all to enjoy. Lumière provides a platform for our different communities to collaborate and present the art of Cape Breton in a whole new light.

Connecting the local population with its existing culture, the organizers of Lumière partner artists with unconventional spaces in downtown Sydney to create this unique night-time cultural event. Venues are located on Charlotte St. & The Esplanade between Townsend St. & Amelia St.

This unique, family-friendly nighttime cultural event is free to the public and runs from 6:58 pm to 11:58 pm on Saturday, September 29th. Rain or shine.

Lumière is a not-for-profit event organized by dedicated members of our community. To learn more about Lumière, check out this video or Facebook page.
