About Light Night Worcester 2021

Following the success of Worcester’s very first light night that received an enthusiastic welcome from 1000s of attendees, Light Night Worcester 2021 will be taking place across the city for 3 nights on 21st, 22nd, 23rd January 2021.

Light Night is part of The Arches festivals’ programme, delivered by Severn Arts as part of the wider The Arches Worcester project, which is supported by the Department of Culture Media and Sports’ Cultural Development Fund, administered by Arts Council England.

About the opportunity

We are seeking to commission a selection of artists to create a number of projection-based new works for Light Night Worcester 2021.

The work must be accessible to all members of the public and respond directly to the festival theme of “Future”. The work must be ready to be installed ahead of Light Night Worcester in January 2021 and will run from 6 – 11pm each evening over 21, 22, 23 January 2021. Your work must last the duration of each evening either continuously as one piece or looped.

The chosen proposals will be produced in conjunction with the Arches Festivals team. The work must be new and original and not something that has taken place before. We are seeking proposals from a broad range of digital artists at a range of scales from larger pieces of work to the micro.

We are open to creative ways in which audiences could engage with your work via digital devices, such as their phones or tablets.
