In 2020, St Nicholas' Church is the ideal location for those who enjoy a unique blend of multimedia art, music and projection.

A digital and musical reinterpretation of the Ghent Altarpiece composed by Mat Collishaw is sure to bring you pure wonderment for half an hour. Enter the church, behold a magical light show with projections on all walls and vaults, and engage in a digital arts experience. Regular live performances complete the picture.

This multimedia experience is accessible to a wide audience of all ages: families, tourists, groups, lovers of art, and techies. Those who have been looking forward to the next edition of the Light Festival are sure to enjoy an exceptionally innovative project in the heart of Ghent. ‘A Digital Tribute to Van Eyck’ is a collaboration between Mankind and CREATE.eu. Both were major crowd pleasers with their dancing robot arms and fire-breathing dragon during the previous Light Festival in 2018.
