Light Up the North will be hosting their first online conference this December. The aim of the conference is to share our collective expertise with practitioners, festival producers, curators, local authorities, funders and other interested parties, creating a strong narrative to further advance the light festival sector, supporting the development of artists, production staff, programmers and technical innovations. This will be our third Light Up the North network conference and our first online and we need your support to successfully deliver the event.
We anticipate between 80 and 120 delegates (maximum) both from the UK and internationally. The two days will comprise six themed sessions of between an hour/ and an hour and a half hour and each plus an evening social on the first evening. The LUTN Chair will have an overall MC role and each hour session will be led by a LUTN Steering Group member. There will be multiple different types of live content including panel discussions, artist talks, Q&As, live speakers, online premieres, a social element (cocktail lounge) on the first evening and a range of supporting pre-recorded content to be integrated into the conference programme and hosted on the LUTN website. The conference will be in English only.
We are looking for a BSL expert(s) to interpret our conference content over the two days of Weds 9 to Thurs 10 December.
