LightNight Liverpool 2016 Opportunities for artists;

LightNight is Liverpool’s late-night arts festival taking place annually in May. Over 50 city centre organisations keep their galleries, museums and venues open until late, staging over 100 special cultural events for visitors of all ages.

LightNight Liverpool is an unforgettable trail of events for all ages, including light projections, street performance, exhibitions, open studios, theatre, dance, walks and tours, live music and many more special activities. Most events are free, and they are created for residents and visitors to the city alike. LightNight 2015 events had over 65,070 visits.

Open Culture is seeking artistic proposals from emerging artists for the 2016 programme.

We are looking for emerging or established artists living or working in the UK. Proposals in any artform are welcome including visual arts, sculpture, technology, moving image, spoken word, performance, installation, light art or any combination of these.

We are looking for artistic projects that are thought-provoking and engaging to the senses exploring the 2016 theme which is Experiment.

These commissions will present opportunities for artists to create work which is:

– presented as part of a major festival that reaches a large and varied audience
– made in collaboration with a new organisation or venue
– challenging but accessible for new audiences

Successful projects will receive up to £550 for artist fees and materials.
