This is the first edition of Southall Light Show, which aims to rediscover Southall's historical and contemporary buildings, squares, parks and canals, through a series of light art interventions. This ambitious outdoor exhibition will aim to create surprise and delight with artworks inspired by the varied cultural backgrounds of local residents. We aim to transform our nocturnal townscape by shedding light on the unique character of Southall! #SouthallLightShow2017 #lightisauniversallanguage
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Southall is a melting pot of visual cultures, history and heritage - we want to celebrate this in a memorable way using the universal medium of light! The outdoor studio days will promote neighbourliness by attracting members of the local community to come together to shape the light installations and make conversation. We hope for it to provide a platform for residents to make new connections and instil a sense of ownership and enjoyment in all participants who contribute to visually enhancing their locality.
Steps to get it done:
We want our project to be inclusive of the many cultural groups present in Southall, highlighting their unique visual languages in a sensitive and uplifting way.
