People standing in a cathedral in front of a light installation

Where There is Light


Where There is Light

Where There Is Light - an immersive sound and light installation - in collaboration with Art Reach, Journeys Festival and BID Leicester.

Installed in Leicester Cathedral between 15–24 October 2021. Pre-booking is required on a 'pay what you can' basis.

Where There Is Light is an immersive sound and light installation sharing the voices and stories of sanctuary seeking communities from across the country.

The soundscape draws on a series of interviews that took place online during lockdown bringing people together.

With the pandemic continuing to impact our daily lives we hope to start to rebuild, reconnect and transform how communities connect in a time of isolation and loneliness. Where There is Light offers a beautiful moment, a break in people's day to day lives, a space to look outside of themselves, to come together and share a sense of connection and hope.

Through Squidsoup's innovative and dynamic storytelling, visitors will learn more about others living in their city who they may not otherwise interact with, leaving with new perspective and insights, and with a call to action to do more to help and support the refugee and asylum-seeking population of Leicester/shire and beyond.
