Where There is Light - Portsmouth

Actions and Detail Panel

Event description
The immersive sound & light installation Where There is Light shares the voices and stories of sanctuary-seeking communities around the UK.

About this event

Where There is Light raises questions about where we find light in our lives, in ourselves, in others and in the world around us.

With the soundscape showcasing interviews that took place online during lockdown in 2020, the installation wants to bring people together and encourage a sense of connection and hope. We hope to rebuild, reconnect and transform how communities connect in times where isolation and loneliness have impacted many people.

A performance by The Organ Project accompanies Where There is Light - Portsmouth on the evening of the 19 October.

Commissioned by ArtReach for Journeys Festival International, with funding from Arts Council England and BID Leicester. Also funded by The Organ Project and Fratton Big Local, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
