Leeds Inspired: Light Night Commission

Leeds Inspired: Light Night Commission
Written by Jane Earnshaw  19/03/2014

What would Vincent think?

Leeds Inspired are commissioning a major new projection mapping and sound work for the city’s annual Light Night event in 2014.

Following the much loved Momentous by Illuminos last year we are looking for an ambitious artwork to re-imagine the front of Leeds Civic Hall for two nights in October.

Leeds Civic Hall, was designed by Vincent Harris and completed in 1933. The building is faced with Portland Stone and constructed in a neo-classical style but for this year’s Light Night we would like to see it dressed up for the next century using projection mapping and sound to create a futuristic new look.

This is an open commission for experienced artists from Leeds and beyond. The deadline for proposals is 22nd April 2014. For more information and details of how to submit your proposal download the application form below. Get your thinking caps on!
