With the help of local artist Anne Rush and photographer John-Paul Pochin, a small group of diverse but like-minded people formed the Light Nelson Collective, forming an ‘engine room’ of support and creative opportunities for anybody wishing to get involved in the event.
The Collective is the birthplace of the Light Nelson event (now Te Ramaroa) and remains its creative engine. The Collective provides a supportive, educational and creative environment that is open to everybody. It's an opportunity to share ideas, skills and collaborate on projects, or just socialise with like-minded people. You can find out more at Light Nelson Collective Facebook page
