Lumiere, the UK’s largest outdoor light festival, is returning to Durham this winter for the fourth time, 12 -15 November 2015.
The festival brings together the world’s most innovative artists and light designers in an artistic programme that is as thought-provoking as it is spectacular. Created by Artichoke, one of the UK’s leading arts producers, Lumiere is commissioned by the Council and receives additional support from Arts Council England and a raft of sponsors.
Artichoke, is again calling for creative submissions following the success of the BRILLANT local commissioning schemes in 2011 and 2013. BRILLIANT offers an opportunity for people living in, or originally from, Durham and the North East to have their idea developed and produced as an artwork, using the medium of light, to be showcased at the festival.
Full details about how to apply are included in the application pack available to download here together with suggested locations.
Applicants for BRILLIANT 2015 should submit their ideas, together with an estimated budget by 12 noon on Monday 23 February.
Light should be at the centre of any idea and anyone can apply – no previous experience is necessary. The most important thing is how BRILLIANT the idea is. The commissions will receive funding and practical support from Artichoke.
The two-stage process will be judged by a panel, which will include representatives from Durham County Council, Durham Cathedral and Artichoke. The final awards will be announced in May 2015.
