With the huge success of Earth Hour last year and more campaigns to save our environment, a light art festival is set to be held around the huge area of Marina Bay this year to promote energy-saving while letting everyone have fun.
In conjunction with this year’s theme, “Light+HeART”, the three-week festival will be powered by energy savings lights to encourage stakeholders around Marina Bay to save electricity during office hours during the lead up to Earth Hour, which will take place on March 29, 2014.
This year, i Light Marina Bay 2014 will showcase a mix of art and light installations from the region and beyond, including collaborations between Singapore and international artists. Spread out from the Esplanade to Marina Bay Sands to the Promontory at Marina Bay, there will be over 25 large-scale outdoor installations by artists from 11 countries. To make the festival more interactive, you will be able to interact with many of the artworks, or even create and become part of the art yourself.
Besides art and exhibitions, a full array of programmes and activities will liven up the Marina Bay waterfront, such as free guided tours, bazaars, educational talks and workshops taking place over the three-week festival. One of the programmes is a skate competition, in which you can attend classes and competitions for a unique night skating experience.
You can also look forward to mouth-watering offerings such as the annual food festival Savour 2014, which will be taking place at the Promontory at Marina Bay, and PasarBella will also be coming down to the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza to set up a “food market” for you to shop for organic produce or try the food.
i Light Marina Bay will open nightly from 7.30pm to 11pm from March 7 to 30, 2014 around the Marina Bay waterfront.
