Capital Illumination Workshop – March 31

This may be of interest, from Hope they come up with something more reliable than the Place du Portage bridge and park (lots of recessed lights hidden behind concrete, probably looked nice when new, now almost all broken).

The NCC invites you to attend a workshop to assist in the development of an illumination plan for the core of Canada’s Capital.

This presentation will highlight UNESCO’s 2015 International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies, which is raising global awareness about how light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health.

Workshop participants will be invited to discuss the mission and objectives of the NCC’s Capital Illumination Plan, identify specific sites that should be illuminated, and complete a survey.

The workshop will include the following:

6 pm Introductions by Dr. Mark Kristmanson, CEO of the NCC
6:10 pm Presentation by Louise Filiatrault, Secretary-General, Canadian Commission for UNESCO on the 2015 International Year of Light and Light-based technologies
6:20 pm Overview of the Capital Illumination Plan, by Stephen Willis, Executive Director, Capital Planning, NCC
6:30 pm Workshop
8:35 pm Discussion and plenary
9 pm End

We look forward to your input which will help us create a holistic Plan for nighttime illumination of both public and private buildings, as well as infrastructure and public art in the urban core.

Space is limited. Please RSVP at by noon, on Monday, March 30.

Simultaneous translation will be available.
Universally accessible. Please let us know if you have any special needs.
