Speaking at Les Lumieres Citoyennes, Lyon
How can we have an impact on society through lighting?
How we can convince decision-makers of the crucial importance of public lighting, particularly in neglected and abandoned areas of towns?
Temporary light and installations can transform places for short periods, but they can also develop into permanent solutions.
Temporary is good because it brings social issues to the forefront and gives hope and a sense of belonging to the residents: it shows that change is possible.
Temporary is good also because it is cheaper: still it’s a powerful tool to convince people of the dramatic importance of lighting in human social life.
In this lecture Elettra will present several successful experiences of temporary interventions that triggered permanent effects on the community, the place, and the stakeholders.
