Lumiere is part of the Light up the North (LUTN) network, a collection of seven northern light festivals which have come together to share their collective expertise to support both the development of the partner festivals and the wider sector.

Through regional, national and international networking and collaboration LUTN nurtures artistic ambition through artist and producer development, co-commissioning and joint fundraising. The capacity and depth of cultural practice within the network enables LUTN to support emerging artists, explore technical innovations and create aspirational work to deliver a compelling offer for audiences. The network is supported by Arts Council England.   Find out more about the network here.
