Bright Lights CB4

Bright Lights CB4 by Oblique Arts
Pop-up light projections in CB4 inspired by the community.

These projections are about the creative brain. A colourful interpretation of circulating ideas and emotions is taken from a series of workshops run by artists with community groups in CB4. The groups are made up of specific individuals who use their brains in very different ways. This project is a exploration of the minds of creative professionals and people living with various mental health difficulties, including dementia. Participants from Rowan Humberstone, Cambridge Art Works, Thrift Walk Studios (Cambridge Art Salon), Cambridge Manor Care Home, Victoria Homes and Winter Comfort took part. The objects and images that they produced have been incorporated into moving image projections that will pop-up around the CB4 area, ending with a light installation on Mitcham’s Corner.

The final projections will be a part of E-luminate in February 2018.


Projections are from 6pm – 9pm.

We are pleased to celebrate the award from the Cambridge City Council Section 106 area grant funding to enable this exciting project. The funding will allow us to engage with the community of CB4 together with visitors and audiences of events such as E-Luminate Festival. We are particularly keen to engage with key community groups, especially those who target disadvantaged individuals.

We wish to bring high quality artwork to a wide audience while being inclusive. It is important to us that the positive changes of the area include representation (voices and images) from those who often lack access to the arts and other cultural activities.
