Fireworks and the Yaletown Business Improvement Association are co-producers of Illuminate Yaletown 2011 http://yaletowninfo.com/events/illuminate featuring spectacular light installations from local artists. In 2009, twenty-thousand people came out to celebrate the twenty-seven light-based art installations created by nineteen diverse artists. This year, the celebration has evolved into a two night event giving Vancouverites the opportunity to view breathtaking light-based art created by some of the top lighting and new media designer in BC, while also commemorating the excitement and pride experienced during the 2010 Winter Games, one year previous. The event will fill the streets of Yaletown, February 11th and 12th from 6 PM to 11 PM.
After almost 8 years without change, Fireworks just published a new website featuring some of its most recent work. We hope you like it and welcome any comments and suggestions.
The Fireworks team is thrilled to have won the Gold Award for the Best Consumer Event/Exhibit/Environment in the Event Design Magazine Awards Program. Working with Bell Canada, we developed an interactive consumer activation space that celebrated the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games and showcased Bell’s HD content offering and leading-edge technologies. Featuring innovative interactive kiosks and video displays, live performances, athlete appearances, and a small store, the pavilion captured the essence of the Bell brand, and engaged over 5,000 visitors a day, for 17 days in February 2010. The Bell Ice Cube became one of the most popular attractions in the downtown core.
