NEWS – Emerging Artist Opportunity

The SHINE programme aims to nurture and develop new talent, giving artists the opportunity to exhibit or perform new work at three of the Light Up The North festivals (Light Night Leeds, Light Up Lancaster, Lightwaves at Salford Quays).

Up to three artists or collectives will be awarded bursaries of up to £4,000 each to realise their new artwork.

The artwork has to be suitable for outdoor winter light festivals, artistically challenging/interesting and of high quality, have a strong element of digital/technology within its design, and be resilient enough to withstand the winter weather at multiple festivals (October – December) and transportation across our festival network.
