Lights on the Exchange: A Winter Arts Festival in Winnipeg

Are you looking for a unique and exciting way to experience Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District this winter? Then you won’t want to miss Lights on the Exchange, a public winter arts festival that showcases light-based artworks by Canadian artists.

From January 21 to March 21, 2024, you can explore the Exchange District’s brick and terracotta buildings, storefronts, rooftops, and alleyways, and discover how they are transformed by stunning installations, sculptures, and projections. Lights on the Exchange invites you to see the neighbourhood in a new light, as the artworks reveal a reimagined history of the area, beyond the usual architectural narratives.

Lights on the Exchange is inspired by festivals like Luminothérapie in Montréal and Fête des lumières in Lyon, but with a distinct Winnipeg flavour. The festival features works by local and national artists, who draw on the rich and diverse tapestry of the Exchange District’s past and present. You can expect to see artworks that challenge your perspectives, spark your curiosity, and celebrate the vibrant art scene and cultural heritage of Winnipeg.

Lights on the Exchange is a free and accessible event, open to all ages and backgrounds. Whether you are a resident or a visitor, you will find something to enjoy and inspire you at this festival. So grab your winter gear, and join us for a memorable night of art and light in the heart of the city.

For more information, visit the official website or follow us on social media. We hope to see you soon at Lights on the Exchange!
