Light Up Your Street
The Light Up Your Street event is a 1-day tactical urbanism workshop on the values of illumination in the neighbourhood-level public spaces, such as streets, squares, alleys or playground. The goal of this event is to raise awareness on the importance of artificial light (design, positioning and technical parameters) in public space and promote light design as a tool for placemaking and tactical urbanism. During the Light Up Your Street Event, temporary light installations will be used as an instrument to test, analyse and measure the impact of light in spaces that are in need of an upgrade. The event will also be used as a toll to enhance social cohesion in the neighbourhood and to motivate public participation in public space renewal.
