BRILLIANT, a £50,000 nationwide commissioning scheme is seeking new works for the UK’s leading light art event. Six awards will be made, with the selected works shown alongside those of internationally-renowned artists at Lumiere, which is commissioned by Durham County Council, taking place in Durham from Thursday 18 – Sunday
Light up the North (LUTN) is a network of six northern light festivals which have come together to share their collective expertise to support both the development of the partner festivals and the wider sector. Through regional, national and international networking and collaboration LUTN nurtures artistic ambition through artist and producer development, co-commissioning and joint fundraising.
The capacity and depth of cultural practice within the network enables LUTN to support emerging artists, explore technical innovations and create aspirational work to deliver a compelling offer for audiences.
