'i Light Singapore': Light installations will be taking over iconic bridges and Fort Canning for the first time in January
See the light
i Light Singapore is one of those festivals that attract the broadest spectrum of visitors: from aunties and uncles in the heartlands, yummy mummies and their toddlers as well as that wannabe influencer looking for that perfect nighttime mood shot, all of whom would be complaining about how overcrowded and stuffy it is. To make matters slightly better, next year's edition will span not only Marina Bay and the Civic District but also iconic bridges such as The Helix Bridge as well as the Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park, which means there will be more space to breathe, pose and bask in the glory of coloured lights.
Curated to the theme "Bridges of Time", the sustainable light festival will also commemorate the bicentennial of Singapore, which marks 200 years since a Caucasian man called Sir Stamford Raffles stepped on this island and claimed it as his. There will be a total of over 30 artworks on display, 17 of which are by Singaporean artists or feature content related to Singapore and the rest are by international creatives from countries such as Estonia and New Zealand.
