Light to Night: _____-in-Progress

Light to Night illuminates and excites the Civic District once again in 2021, this time offering a redefined, hybrid experience.

Over the two weeks of the festival, audiences can expect a slew of exciting and engaging activities within the Civic District and beyond. Presenting an intermingling of complementary physical and digital experiences that promise to delight all audiences, festivalgoers can enjoy art workshops from the comforts of home, tune into live streamed talks, embark on an adventure of discovery around the District, and even encounter art from the festival at surprising places outside the historic precinct.

Informed by zeitgeist and the reality of a new normal faced by all, the festival peers through an artistic lens to showcase progress and adaptability in the face of circumstance. Besides looking to artists to respond to this theme, the festival will also continue to engage its audiences, inspiring them to discover and create their personal interpretations of the festival’s narrative through art.

Light to Night is organised by National Gallery Singapore, in collaboration with five of the Civic District’s most iconic cultural institutions: Asian Civilisations Museum, The Arts House, Victoria Theatre & Victoria Concert Hall and Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.
