A colourful illuminated typography installation, inspired by the rich industrial history of the city. The installation delivers a positive and hopeful message to the people of Bradford and playfully provokes a calming moment of thought, self reflection, reassurance and optimism for the future.

The phrase, “There Are Brighter Times Ahead” acknowledges that there will be highs and lows but remaining optimistic is crucial both as an individual and as a community. It realises the struggle that people are going through and gives them a moment of reflection that will hopefully stay with them.

BRIGHTER TIMES is part of Bradford is LiT – A district-wide festival of light which culminated on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 Nov 2021 in Bradford city centre.

LiT is supported by The City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Bradford 2025, The Leap Bradford, Ilkely BID and Bradford BID.

The BRIGHTER TIMES installation is on display in the window of Keighley Creative in Keighley, Bradford.

Dates & Times:
Monday 25 Oct – Friday 12 Nov 2021.

Note: Although the installation can be viewed at anytime, the lighting element can only be viewed during the night.
