Shine is a new light festival for Lismore taking place from August 19-22 in the heart of the city. The festival is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from artists interested in being commissioned to create new and unexpected light installations ranging from small surprises to large projections that tell untold stories. Shine will support artists to create strong, bold and curious works, for a program of contemporary light installations in Molesworth Street and Lismore’s inner-city laneways.
Shine is interested in diverse voices and hearing from both emerging and established artists. The program allows for these artists to use Shine as a platform to present experimental works in light.
Shine is looking for (but not limited to):
Potential locations for presentations include (but are not limited to): shop windows, arcade spaces, laneways, road surfaces, buildings, trees, parked cars, stairwells, and the sky.
The festival will support artists with access to power, rigging and installation approvals and onsite security as well as limited tech support and equipment over four nights. Details will require a discussion with the festival director.
Proposals will be evaluated against the following criteria:
Successful artists will be expected to undertake project development from April to July.
For new works budgets of up to $10,000 per artwork will be considered. This must include an artist fee and costs associated with creating, delivering, installing and removing the artwork.
For existing works budgets of up to $10,000 per artwork will be considered. This must include an artist fee and costs associated with creating, delivering, installing and removing the artwork.
For existing video works there is an artist fee of $200 per work. All infrastructure and technology will be provided.
