GLOW Winter Arts Festival from 10 August to 20 August 2017 is when the City of Stonnington lights up after dark, bathing the community in a host of lighting installations by creative artists. It's a festival that brings everyone together as one to marvel at larger than life illuminated pieces across some of Stonnington's most iconic venues and public spaces.

In the cold of the night, there's nothing like the warm fuzzy feeling of community, strangers and friends smiling together and in awe of 11 luminous evenings taking you on an artistic journey of light from twilight till after dark.
