The Department of Illumination was founded in 2013 by a group of artists in Prince Edward County, Ontario, who came together to create the Firelight Lantern Festival. This annual celebration has grown to become one of the most beloved cultural events in the County. Six years later, we expanded our work with ICE BOX, showing our love for our community by continuing to create magical arts experiences that are accessible to all. In 2019, we became an incorporated not-for-profit organization: The Department of Illumination Artistic Company.
