Starting in 2010, the festival is operated by Art in the Dark Charitable Trust and produced by Celery Productions.

Over four nights annually, Art in the Dark lights up Western Park in Auckland with creative projects from the most innovative artists in New Zealand and abroad.

Participating in Art in the Dark challenges artists to create projects that not only fit the specific contours of the great, urban outdoors but that must illuminate the dark, using sustainable materials and energy wherever possible.

Each year this free event sees Auckland’s Western Park transform into a buzzing hub of activity with over 50,000 visitors. The audience witnesses over forty light art installations ranging from projections, performances, installations and large scale immersive experiences.

Art in the Dark lights up Western Park annually in November from 8pm-midnight. Installations, short films and performances had the park glowing with ingenuity once more. The free event has become a platform for bright Kiwi minds to show off their talents, and a chance for the community to get involved in the art world from the comfort of their city’s own backyard.
