Portsmouth Creates plans to collaborate with creatives in the city to host a free cultural event in Winter 2021 called We Shine Portsmouth – Portsmouth’s very own major light festival.
(Originally planned for 2020 but unfortunately postponed due to Covid-19)
Light festivals have become synonymous with cities of rich cultural identities and increasing local economy. One of the largest light festivals in the UK, Durham Lumiere boasted a boost of £9.6 million in 2016 and this continues to soar year on year. The group believe Portsmouth can experience the same benefits for the city and position itself higher as an exciting city of culture. The aim is to help highlight and grow the arts sector as well as force the outside world to sit up and take notice.
With key stakeholders already backing Portsmouth Creates including The Arts Council England, The University of Portsmouth, Portsmouth City Council and Victorious Festival, We Shine Portsmouth is off to a fantastic start.
