Photo Gallery: ENLIGHTEN Bury – Festival of Light and Sound
Arts producers Curated Place partnered with Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre to develop ENLIGHTEN Bury, a new sound and light festival that took place over two nights, reinventing the experience of Light Night into a high quality public art installation trail alongside an international music programme.
ENLIGHTEN Bury featured music and A/V performances from Hannah Peel, Wrangler, Plaid, Sykur, Orka, Wyles & Simpson, Cobby and Litten, James Orvis and more, with visual arts interactives from BAFTA-winning Seb Lee-Delise, Felix Thorn, Paul Friedlander, The Owl Project and Stanza to name but a few.
An astonishing array of interactive light and sound installations brought the streets, venues, galleries and bars of Bury’s cultural quarter to life, while stars of experimental world music played into the night.
Curated Place is one of the UK’s leading arts and festival producers. They recently won 2016 Scottish Festival of the Year for the SPECTRA festival in Aberdeen, and this year delivered the critically acclaimed John Grant’s North Atlantic Flux for Hull 2017 UK City of Culture.
