The Brick Box is bringing Little Light Nights to east London as part of this two-month festival of light, which is part of the UNESCO International Year of Light. As well as creating a fantastic opportunity for people to
take part in a live art exhibition, the project is about providing a positive environment for people to dwell after dark. We aim to make better use of the city’s existing assets and encourage imaginative use of public realm space. You can literally put yourself in the picture and become part of an ever-changing co-created mural of light, shadows and colour.
Little Light Nights is brought to you by The Brick Box CIC, an arts organisation and social enterprise based in London and Bradford, working nationally and internationally.
We empower people to take part in arts and cultural activity in under used spaces. We believe in the power of creative expression to transform people's lives and environments. From shopping centre loading bays to motorway underpasses, goods lifts to double decker buses, underground tunnels to disused docks, we find inspiration in some very unlikely spots and thrive on filling in-between and often overlooked spaces with a large sprinkling of art, love and magic.
