As night falls, artists and communities will celebrate Poole’s diverse landscape with co-produced light and sound installations illuminating the historic old town, urban high street, and waterfront. Inspired by the theme ‘Spectrum’, artists will respond to difference exploring disability, social exclusion, age, faith and more. New for 2020 is a ‘Light Up Family Rave’ and a daytime talks programme at Lighthouse, Poole. We want to encourage the public to explore the arts:science:technology crossover from new angles. Highlights include senior science adviser Mark McCaughrean from The European Space Agency, BBC’s art and cultural historian Dr Janina Ramirez and the story of Mathmos Lava Lamps: Made in Poole since 1963.
