About project

The annual international festival of light art in Yekaterinburg. Key stages of project development.


The first official festival of light art was named «Undark». Traditionally held on the shortest night of the year. Thanks to the work of Timofey Radi “Lampshade”, the project loudly announced itself both at the regional and federal levels


The Cultural Transit Foundation held the first pilot festival of light art. Five installations of urban artists illuminated the shortest night of the year

A new level: for the first time, the festival will take place not in the city center, but will comprehensively master 2 scenic sites 1.5 km from each other: Uktus Nature Park and the new Shishimskaya Gorka residential quarter.
