LUMA 2018 Call for Submissions
LUMA Southern Light Project is an annual light festival which will take place from June 1st to 4th 2018 in the Queenstown Gardens, the Queenstown waterfront, and specific locations throughout the CBD.

We have identified several significant sites within the festival which we would like to invite artists to engage with. These sites are pivotal elements of the LUMA experience and this represents a unique opportunity to collaborate and bring diversity to this rapidly expanding event.

LUMA will welcome expressions of interest from artists offering bespoke, site-specific creations or installations which have been exhibited previously at other light festivals. All proposals will be considered; including projection mapping, mixed media sculpture, interactive lighting elements and performance pieces, as long as the artist believes they will enhance, and add to, the LUMA experience.

The three areas we are keen to see concepts for, are Earnslaw Park, the Queenstown Gardens Rotunda and Queenstown Gardens Glasshouse. Please refer to the event page to view previous installations in the above locations.
