Green Space Dark Skies is inspired by the 90th anniversary of the 1932 Kinder Scout Mass Trespass, a pivotal event in the movement to secure access to the countryside for ordinary people that influenced the creation of the UK’s network of National Parks.

People from all path in life are invited to become Lumenators to carry specially developed wireless programmable, low impact lights developed with Green Space Dark Skies technology partner, Siemens. Lumenators will head into 20 wild and beautiful places across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. And then together, as dusk falls, create extraordinary outdoor artworks in National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including finale events happening in all four UK nations in September. These powerful moments of digital choreography will be captured on camera; and short films of each event, free to view online, will incorporate the stories of the people and places featured.
