Hope, Community, Collaboration.

Arrive after dark and explore this luminous landscape of lanterns in Dublin’s National Botanic Gardens. A forest of illuminated figures, harmonious fusions of human and plant forms light up this beloved Dublin landmark. Crafted by artist Tom Meskell and fifty community participants, these lanterns embody hope, community, and collaboration journeys.

Walk amongst the Silva Lumina. Feel the glow of hope, become part of a community, and reflect on the strengths of collaboration.
