Brisbane City Council's creative lighting projects aim to activate the city, bring people together to celebrate our enviable lifestyle, support small businesses and create a strong local economy.

Lighting and projection outcomes can support events, create a unique identity for Brisbane and introduce elements of surprise and discovery enhancing the city experience for residents and visitors.
