See you in 2022!

This year, the Festival of Lights proved as popular as ever with the public flocking to enjoy an impressive – and eclectic - lineup of artworks. During the 4-day event, the City of Lyon showcased thirty works, ranging from intimate installations to spectacular projection mapping. The Lumignons du Coeur charity campaign on place des Jacobins collected €35,000 for student organisation GAELIS, allowing them to distribute the equivalent of 87,500 meals in solidarity grocery stores.
