Lights On The Exchange

January 21 - March 21, 2024

Lights on the Exchange is a Public winter arts festival in Winnipeg’s Exchange District

From brick and terracotta buildings to storefronts, rooftops and alleyways, Lights on the Exchange – Allumez le Quartier invites you to explore light in its many forms and settings. Canadian artists create fresh, contemporary installations, sculptures and projections that reveal a reimagined history of the area.

A collection of light-based artworks

Canadian multi-media artists draw on the neighbourhood’s rich tapestry to create engaging works that spark conversation and challenge perspectives. 

Lights on the Exchange – Allumez le Quartier will return for its second year from January 21 through March 21.

While drawing inspiration from festivals like Luminothérapie in Montréal and Fête des lumières in Lyon, the emphasis for Lights on the Exchange – Allumez le Quartier is on artistic expressions that tell histories that go beyond those regularly told in relationship to its heritage buildings.
