How do you STAND UP for what you believe in?

Brighter Ignited is an illuminated and travelling art exhibit that actively encourages people to engage, connect, and play. Designed by artist Tova Speter and built by craftsman Manny Hutter, this super-sized interactive light display will tour Greater Boston throughout December 2022, featuring illuminated artwork by hundreds of participants from various local communities.

When there is something you are passionate about, dedicated to, and ready to stand up for — how do you ignite action?

Inspired by the courage of the Maccabees in the story of Hanukkah,  Brighter  Ignited  activates the light
from the community and encourages us to explore how we too can stand up for what we believe in.
