On the evening of February 1st, 2019, Winnipeggers from all walks of life are encouraged to explore the Exchange District, and #ActivateWinter with diverse communities. “LIGHTS: A Winter celebration in support of Artbeat Studio” is a free, public event that uses Winter as a driving force to bring people together in the heart of our city, while also raising awareness and funds for our newest member, Artbeat Studio.

Three main components will make up the event with LIGHTS as the connective theme throughout. Colourful lights around Old Market Square, a communal barrel fire, a lit-up POP UP BOX shipping container housing a Warm-up Station, and ice lanterns lining Albert Street connecting Old Market Square and Artbeat Studio will activate the trifecta of activity.

This event is generously funded by The Winnipeg Foundation.
