Lumière is an art-at-night festival that takes place in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Each year, Lumière takes over the downtown core of Sydney to present fresh, exciting contemporary art projects to the public. Working with artists from Cape Breton and beyond, the festival presents innovative projects in a unique format that transforms everyday spaces in to extraordinary venues for the arts.
