HISTORY OF THE FESTIVAL

About Lumen

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.

Traditionally hosting 30+ visual, interactive, new media, and performance-based installations, the event was adapted in 2020 to a virtual format in order to accommodate for the safety of the community. Introducing: Lumen at Home

ATTENDEES TESTIMONIALS

"Lumen took us on an evening exploration of Waterloo's downtown [...] The city nailed it with this festival. It brings together Waterloo's arts and tech community into a common experience."
