Visit us for the City of Waterloo's Lumen festival for interactive installations throughout Uptown. Stop by the Main Library to check out our unique installation of sound and light!

Lumen is an annual, free, all-ages festival that is open to the public and run by the City of Waterloo’s Arts and Culture team (Create Waterloo). The event features the work of artists as they explore the interplay of light, art, and technology in installations located throughout uptown Waterloo.

Established in 2018, Lumen takes place on the last Saturday of September at various indoor and outdoor installation locations, bringing together tech industry leaders like the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), the Perimeter Institute and Shopify, with locally and internationally renowned multi-disciplinary artists.

The event hosts 30+ visual, interactive, new media, and performance-based installations. Residents and community members are invited to enjoy this free festival in uptown Waterloo and get thinking about our community’s public spaces and how they transform our shared experiences.

In addition to a lineup of high-caliber artists, Lumen has also featured collaborations and partnerships between the City of Waterloo and cultural organizations such as Button Factory Arts, Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, Waterloo Public Library, Mary Allen Studio Tour, Centre for International Governance Innovation, Kazoo!Fest, THEMUSEUM, City of Waterloo Museum, Department of Fine Arts, University of Waterloo, Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo, LAUNCH Waterloo, Canada Learning Code.
