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..."

TRUMP GO HOME BUS HITS SALFORD

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
