Nightfall Light Festival 2021 Children's Light Trail Commission Opportunity!

We are looking for an artist or creative company/collective to design and create a series of artworks/features aimed at children for the Nightfall Light Trail. Nightfall is a magical family-friendly outdoor event which will take place at Stewart Park in Middlesbrough from Thursday 2nd – Sunday 5th December. It is a self-guided trail of light-based artworks complemented by music, storytelling and performance.

The commission is for one artist or creative company/collective to create six features for the trail which may include different artforms such as light, visual arts, audio, video projection etc. The features will be developed in response to the Nightfall theme, A Stellar Rainbow and will create simple ways that children can engage with the theme as they make their way around the Nightfall light trail, providing moments of joy, colour and playfulness for our younger visitors and their families.   

Commission fee: £6,000 to create six artworks, including materials (additional budget is available for travel, accommodation and access costs).
