Workington Winter Lightworks Festival

Workington Winter Lightworks Festival  was a two year programme to showcase a diverse range of light-based work by some of the hottest and most innovative young designers and artists from near and far. Curated by Cathy Newbery the selected artists were from Sweden, Iran, Turkey, Korea and Taiwan as well as Penrith, Brampton and Cleator Moor. The festival commissioned new light-based artworks, and borrowed existing artworks, for display in shop windows in Workington town centre. The aim was to brighten up the town during the dark winter months.
