How to be BRILLIANTBack to all
February 2nd, 2017
BRILLIANT is a competition where anyone originally from, or currently living in the North East can apply with an idea for a light installation at Lumiere Durham 2017. Want to enter? Here are some tips from Lumiere producer, Kate Harvey.
Keep it simple
Past BRILLIANT winners have taken every day objects as their inspiration. Do you work with something already that could be transformed with light?
Draw on your own experience
The best proposals are drawn from existing skills or knowledge. It doesn’t need to be something creative, it could be your connection to a place or something that happened to you.
The possibilities of light
Light can transform our surroundings and make the recognisable feel unfamiliar. Think about how light could enhance your idea.
You don’t need to have all the answers
It’s OK if you don’t know all the technical detail about how to make your idea work. If you are successful, Artichoke (producers of Lumiere Durham) will support you to help you figure everything out.
Take a look around
Imagine walking down a busy street. What would make your idea stand out during Lumiere Durham?
Location, location, location
We get lots of entries for the urban spaces in Durham city centre, but what about using its green spaces?
Lead the way
Your idea could include a series or trail of pieces, which would move audiences along a specific route.
