Pilot project hopes to spark creativity for lighting on heritage buildings

August 17, 2016

Creative lighting can highlight Edmonton's beautiful and unique heritage buildings, especially during the winter months. A new pilot project, driven by the City’s WinterCity Office and Heritage Unit, will match funding for creative lighting installations on heritage buildings, up to $50,000.

The pilot project will focus primarily on designated structures that are particularly significant or are located in prominent locations with maximum exposure to the public. The project has a total of $250,000 to disburse. A maximum of three large projects will be approved, requiring the full $50,000 support, with the remainder supporting smaller projects.

Applications are now available online and funding will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
