The third Glow Shenzhen, a grand light festival featuring 217 works of light art created by artists around the world, was officially launched last night.

Glow Shenzhen 2022, themed “Chasing the Flowing Light,” has its main venue set up in Futian District and has nine other subvenues in Luohu, Nanshan, Bao’an, Longgang, Guangming, Longhua, Pingshan and Yantian districts, and Dapeng New Area to connect seven shopping centers in the city that have been decorated for the glow carnival.

A total of 68 activities will be held at parks, squares, street blocks, shopping centers and tourist destinations during the festival, which will run until Feb. 19 next year.

Glow Shenzhen, as one of the city’s night economy brands, also strives to become a world-class light art brand. Artists, institutions and enterprises have cooperated to design a slew of light-themed offline and online activities to diversify citizens’ shopping experience, enrich their cultural life and support the city to build an international consumption center.
