Helen Marriage (LF ‘13) has used art and spectacle to change the way people think about the places they live, work and play. The recent success of her London-based creative company, Artichoke, was the Lumiere light festival in the Northern Irish city of Derry~Londonderry last winter, which attracted over 350 thousand people. Underneath this work lies a more ambitious mission: to confront the longstanding divisions that prevent coming together as a community in Northern Ireland. Now she has a new big idea and her medium is fire.
