Open Call: Be part of LightNight 2021

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

Our theme for 2021 will be Play. As we begin to process the shockwaves of a global catastrophe LightNight 2021 hopes to find respite as we explore how Play can offer a space to create, re-imagine and find novel solutions.

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 physical we’re keen to hear from you.
