Portland Winter Light (non)Festival 2021
Call for Pop-Up Installations


February 5-6 & February 12-13, 2021

The call for Pop-Up Installations is now closed. We'll see you in February!

The theme for 2021 is A Brighter Future. We invite you to consider ideas of connection, the environment, and breaking barriers. Please see below for the full thematic inspiration by Artistic Director Chris Herring. 

Theme 2021: A Brighter Future

As we leave the darkness behind us, let us turn all eyes ahead.
Plant our feet firmly into the earth and move forward together.
It's time for us to give each other a gift.

Makers, miners, machinists, and magicians!

This year the light is in your hands.
Bring the color.
The spectrum
Make your ideas real.

Persons, pioneers, planners, and perfectionists!

It’s your turn to sparkle.
Show us your radiance, glow, and rainbows.
Take them out of your pocket and toss them into the air for all to see.

Creatives, cogs, citizens, and centenarians!

Choose a color to be a beacon for your community.
Find new ways to connect, make art, make light, and show your true color.

It's 2021, we are deep in the future, the only one we have.
Let's run headfirst into possibility and make a better tomorrow. 
The 21st century is demanding change.

Let our light guide us out of the darkness.
