The Event

ALIGHT is a block party, a beautiful light orientated technology party for the launch of the Tshimologong Precinct in collaboration with Tshimologong (WITS), Between10and5 and the Create Africa’s FUTURE SOUNDS project with Goethe Institut Johannesburg.

After formal opening events with the founders of the Tshimologong Precinct, the streets surrounding the corner of Juta and Henri Street in Braamfontein will be ignited with projection mapping, light sculpture, light based games, music and more.  Come play and have fun.



The final FUTURE SOUNDS musical projects will then be performed by the artists along with The Constitute at ALIGHT.
