    Winter Nights, City Lights is an outdoor event that marks the start of the winter season at Esplanade Park and in the City of Pickering. The event includes the lighting of the seasonal décor for the first time each year.

    For this year’s Winter Nights, City Lights, sponsored by Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and Elexicon Energy, we ask that artists interpret the warmth of the light in their installations as a beacon of celebration. The proposed installation should reflect how light illuminates some of the most meaningful moments, creating harmonious connections between experiences and people, and ultimately shaping stronger communities and a better world.

    We are seeking proposals for light-based artworks, preferably existing, and can be either a sculpture, installation, multimedia, or projections that can withstand the harsh outdoor winter conditions and activate the space at dusk.
