About The Project

Our heritage project will document the little-known behind-the-scenes development of Diwali Lights Switch On (DLSO), as well as explore the community festival through the experiences of people and families participating in DLSO. Our project will gather community memories of the event, generating a broad understanding of this history. Since October 1983, multiple generations of Leicester's communities have come together for DLSO. Many of those children experiencing it in 1983 now attend with their own children & grandchildren. It has meant something very special to those generations - home, family, reflection – but equally now culture, dance, art, fashion and fun. Our project will uncover these stories - please find the full brief here.
