AN INTERNATIONAL LIGHT FESTIVAL IN THE OLD CITY 15 – 22 JUNE, 20:00 – 24:00. FREE ADMISSION
Following the success of last year’s Jerusalem Festival of Light, Jerusalem’s Old City will once again form the magnificent backdrop for lighting installations, exhibits and tours in the Light in Jerusalem 2011 festival, 15 – 22 June 2011 between the hours of 20:00-24:00. This celebration of light in an urban setting, the initiative of the Jerusalem Development Authority together with the Prime Ministers’ Office, Ministry of Tourism and the Jerusalem Municipality and produced by the Ariel Company, is once again expected to attract over 250,000 visitors to the Old City over the week-long festival.
Special attractions (free admission) include artistic light exhibits designed by leading local and international light artists on display in the Old City; street events and performances; tourist attractions; a lighting fair in the Davidson Centre Archeological Garden and four different trails around the Old City following the illuminated sites and installations. This year, the Light Festival will explore the connection between light and sound and the senses of sight and hearing, as well as the special relation that is created when a visual experience enhances an auditory experience and vice versa.
