Curated Place has partnered with MIRIAD at the Manchester School of ArtI/O/Lab (Stavanger) and Fondazione Mondo Digitale (Rome) to form the European Light Expression Network (ENLIGHT), which will build on our existing programme to offer six international residencies connecting artists with technicians and scientists to create a series of accessible, large-scale public realm Light Art works.

The second call for artists is now open. Find out now to apply here.

As well as the residencies we will run two focused creative labs welcoming artists and technologists selected from across Europe to Rome and Manchester.

The presentation of these artworks will then take place at the established light and technology festivals/events already run by the partners, including Rome Media Art Festival, the innovative media arts festival Article Biennial in Stavanger, Enlighten Festival of Light and Sound Art in Manchester and the brilliantly successful Spectra, Aberdeen’s Festival of Light supported by Aberdeen City Council’s International Twinning Grant connecting Stavanger and Aberdeen.
