Gardens of l'Antiquaille, Fourviere district - Festival of Lights 2017

Every year, the Festival of Lights gives students ‘carte blanche’ to experiment with light.

The students and young creators come from the Grands Ateliers de l’ Isle d’Abeau, the University of Lyon-III, and the University of Leipzig in Germany.

You can witness the students projections on the fronts of the Saint-Pothain student residence.
