Vivid Sydney – Expression of Interests required

Posted on Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Light artists, designers and architects from across Australia are invited to respond to an Expression of Interest (EOI) to deliver creative, immersive and energy-efficient light installations to feature in a nightly sculpture walk during the Vivid Sydney annual festival of light, music and ideas, from 27 May – 13 June 2011. 

Vivid celebrates Sydney as the creative hub of the Asia Pacific with large scale light installations and projections; free family events; music performances and collaborations; creative ideas, discussion and debate. Vivid Sydney is one of five signature events on the NSW Events Calendar developed by the NSW Government through Events NSW and was first held in 2009, with the popular event now established as Sydney’s major winter festival.

EOI positions are available for Australian artists, designers, landscape architects and creative teams, including two positions for university student submissions and one position for an ‘emerging artist’ under 35 years old. Request for submissions include pavement, wall, façade and foyer treatments. Successful applicants for Vivid Light will be offered design fees of up to $15,000 to cover design and conceptual work, construction, materials, delivery and installation.
