Open Culture is looking for proposals to form next year’s festival programme and showcase the city’s world-class arts offer to a diverse audience from across the North West and beyond.
Their theme for 2022 will be Energy.
They work with everyone to create LightNight, from major arts venues and artists to studios, collectives, and community groups from across Merseyside. If you’re interested in presenting work for LightNight, whether virtually online or through live events they’re keen to hear from you.
This open call has two strands:
Paid Artist Commissions (Closes: 18 Nov 2021)
In-kind Programming & Late Openings (Closes: 10 Jan 2022)
Paid Artist Commissions
They’re looking to commission 2-4 new works by artists or arts collectives living/working in the UK for next year’s festival. They’re looking for engaging proposals that explore the theme of ‘Energy’ across any artform with an option to present online.
If you are interested in submitting, please read the brief and email your proposal.
In-kind Programming & Late Openings
Arts and heritage organisations, artists, community groups and other creatives are invited to propose special events and activities (physical or virtual) that explore the theme to be part of LightNight.
