LIGHT UP LANCASTER 2023: Open Call for Projects

Light Up Lancaster Open Call

Each year Light Up Lancaster has created a magical trail of light art illuminating and celebrating the city’s magnificent landscapes, architecture and the heritage of the people who live there.

The festival, across 3 nights, delivers an enchanting, free, family friendly trail of discovery in a series of interlinked light installations located across Lancaster, transforming the city with captivating site-specific light art, music and performance from local, national and international artists.

Call For Light Art Project
We are inviting light art proposals for one of the key locations at Light Up Lancaster – the historic Priory Church.

Location: Priory Church, Lancaster LA1 1YZ

Site: Link to Google Maps 

All projects should have light as an integral feature of the work and must be suitable for a family audience.
We are inviting proposals from artists working with light to respond to this beautiful, historic space. Your proposal could be for an existing work which can be effectively re-sited or a completely new piece.

Your proposal, if possible, should respond to the Light Up Lancaster2023 theme, ‘The Art of Words’. Your proposal might be fun, playful or contemplative but must be suitable to be installed indoors in this working church. Your proposal may include engagement opportunities – please state this if so. Above all, we are looking for proposals that will delight and surprise visitors of all ages.

A maximum fee of up to £12,000 is available for the selected commission. All costs of the installation must be included in this fee. Some technical support, provided by the Light Up Lancaster production team, will be available for the successful application.
