Be part of LightNight 2022 – Open call

Open Culture is looking for proposals to form next year’s festival programme and showcase the city’s world-class arts offer to a diverse audience from across the North West and beyond.

The theme for 2022 will be Energy. 

We work with everyone to create LightNight, from major arts venues and artists to studios, collectives, and community groups from across Merseyside. If you’re interested in presenting work for LightNight, whether virtually online or through live events we’re keen to hear from you.

This open call has two strands:

Paid Artist Commissions (Closes: 18 Nov 2021)
In-kind Programming & Late Openings (Closes: 10 Jan 2022)

Open Consultation Days

On Wednesday 10 November 2021 we’re all yours! Whether you’re interested in being part of LightNight, want to give us your ideas or feedback, or just fancy a quick catch up you can book in a time to chat with us.

Please get in touch via info@culture.org.uk to book a 30min slot, let us know your preference for a phone call or video chat, and we’ll aim to get you booked in.

2022 Open Call

Paid Artist Commissions

Closing date: 18 Nov 2021

We’re looking to commission 2-4 new works by artists or arts collectives living/working in the UK for next year’s festival. We’re looking for engaging proposals that explore the theme of ‘Energy’ across any artform with an option to present online.

If you are interested in submitting, please read the brief and email your proposal.

In-kind Programming & Late Openings

Closing date: 10 Jan 2022

Arts and heritage organisations, artists, community groups and other creatives are invited to propose special events and activities (physical or virtual) that explore the theme to be part of LightNight.

Interested? Please read the brief and then submit your proposal via the online form by the closing date.

2022 Theme: Energy

What is energy? Where does it come from and how is it best used? Can we continue to act as though we have limitless energy and infinite resources?

We will explore how energy underpins everything in the universe. All of life, nature and human activity is powered through a perpetual dance of energy conversion and transformation, and we will explore these processes to consider the relationship we have with our physical, interpersonal, and metaphysical environment.

Support LightNight

If you have enjoyed the festival in the past, and love the work Open Culture do, please consider donating to help keep LightNight going in the coming years.
