i Light Singapore – Bicentennial Edition presents a curated mix of more than 20 programmes alongside 33 light art installations from 28 January to 24 February 2019. An anchor event to kick-start the Singapore Bicentennial commemoration in 2019, the Festival will connect people across generations through shared experiences, delectable food, delightful music and immersive play, while promoting awareness about sustainability and the evolution of our city through time.
Spanning Marina Bay, the Civic District, Singapore River and Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park, i Light Singapore – Bicentennial Edition will feature five distinct programming hubs for festival-goers looking for a fun, engaging and unique experience as they traverse our iconic waterfront – bridging old and new Singapore along the Festival route.
Hosting the light art installations for the first time, the historic Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park will welcome visitors with a musical experience, as the National Parks Board presents Festival at the Fort @ i Light Singapore. Programme highlights include acoustic music acts and special piano showcases by local talents, roving performances, movie screenings and guided tours of the historic Fort Canning Hill led by fellow heritage lovers.
In line with the sustainability focus of the light art festival, The Lawn @ Marina Bay will be transformed into Eco Lawn @ i Light Singapore, where environmental sustainability, fitness, and social good come together. Visitors can join local environmental social enterprise Terra SG to try their hands at a diverse range of upcycling workshops, or go on an ecologically-responsible shopping spree at the Sustainable Lifestyle Market. Alternatively, they can also choose to embrace a sustainable healthy lifestyle by joining the yoga and fitness activities under the beautiful City Gazing Singapore light art installation.
