  • King’s Lynn town centre lights up!

    September: Did you join us to play giant Pac-Man on Customs House or step through smoke and light projections at Greyfriars Tower? On Friday 29th September, for one weekend only, Collusion presented a one-off showcase of four exciting, experimental arts projects working with the projectors in King’s Lynn town centre. Hoards of people travelled across the region to experience and interact directly with these unique works.

    Developed over four months, these prototype projects were created by four teams of artists and creative professionals for the Lynn Lumiere light projection sites at the Tuesday Market Place, the Custom House, Greyfriars Tower and King’s Lynn Arts Centre. Working closely with King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council, Collusion has supported the teams to test early-stage ideas, experiment and push the boundaries of live data and projection technologies placed around King’s Lynn town centre.
