This year's Quays Culture Lightwaves Digital Light Festival runs from this Friday 8th December until Sunday 17th December, and features twelve free outdoor light experiences, plus eight artworks at The Lowry and a special Baby Moves Workshop for babies and toddlers at the Lowry Outlet on Saturday 9th December.

The outdoor lights span the area from the MediaCityUK Plaza to The Lowry and include all sorts of strange but dazzling interactive works...

...I FORGOT is a collaboration between artist Jackie Kay and Salford based Soup Collective which features a 15 metres long neon sign board. The audience is invited to telephone the work and leave messages about what they forgot to say, which will then be re-worked into a poem.

Meanwhile, HYDROZOME is a large waterside rope sculpture of light, sound and interactivity by Belgian artist Tom Dekyvere, which sees a microphone placed in the River Irwell, capturing the sounds underneath the surface, and then translating them from soundwaves into lightwaves.

There's also top works from Blackpool Illuminations, including a Pirate Tableau, Sooty, Sweep and Soo, and Star Trek, plus a special showcase of one hundred faces and places of Greater Manchester, created from photos submitted by local people. DUET is a public artwork by Invisible Flock, created via data from a mobile phone app in which people from India and the UK exchange details of their lives.

The SHINE is an emerging artist programme that features four new small scale commissions by up and coming artists; Brink Dance Company and Howl Creative perform in the University of Salford's foyer at MediaCityUK campus. Kira Zhigalina creates an immersive and interactive installation, visualising breathing with a digital dome. Will Hurt brings his Abstract Playground AP3 consoles to The Lowry foyer areas and Naifei Wu's childlike robots relate stories from the people of Manchester.

At the weekends, Sarah Wakeford is running Light Graffiti Workshops, for all ages in small groups or solo... "This interactive workshop captures participants' light graffiti on camera, allowing the public to download and enjoy" state the organisers.

On Saturday 9th December, between 10am and 11am, there's also a Baby Moves Workshop being held on the ground floor of the Lowry Outlet in free 15 minute sessions...

"Open to parents with babies and toddlers, recommended for children aged six months to 2.5 years old, this is a fun way to encourage children's physical and social development through sensory and creative play" state the organisers "Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis..."

DREW POVEY ACCUSES SALFORD COUNCIL OF 'HEAVY HANDED' 'VENDETTA'

"I'm speaking up for myself but also all the leaders who have been in touch to say the same happened to them #TakeAStand..." Drew Povey

Drew Povey, the Executive Head of Harrop Fold in Little Hulton, has resigned from his post, slamming Salford Council's "heavy handed approach" while investigating 'administrative errors' at the school and accusing it of a "personal vendetta".

In an open letter to the school's governors, Drew Povey writes that he refuses to walk away from the school with a settlement and accept a gagging clause.  So he's gone public...to #TakeAStand.
