enLighten to light up Edinburgh
enLIGHTen is an exciting new event for Edinburgh that will fuse words and cutting edge technology to light up the night sky during March. Every evening from 6pm until Midnight, the dark streets will be lit up with massive dynamic projections on various city centre buildings.
The famous quotes from the Scottish Enlightenment period will illuminate buildings along George Street and Rose Street to spectacular effect.
enLIGHTen will include specially commissioned animations and audio, to create a stunning, multi-sensory experience for locals and tourists alike.
You can download a specially commissioned audio as a treat for your ears as well as your eyes. This will be available in time for the grand launch in St Andrew Square at 6pm on Friday 1st March.
We can’t wait see Edinburgh City of Literature in a whole new light.
