Light Night 2014

25 Sep

Calling local artists and venues!

Sunday 23rd November 1-8pm, Sheffield City Centre

We want to unlock the doors of spaces we don’t ordinarily get to see, animate places in a completely new way and celebrate what Sheffield has to offer for all ages. Maybe it’s a film screening, a comedy sketch, dancing….we want to challenge our perceptions and engage with new people in new spaces providing an exciting event for all ages!

This is a small event, complementing the activities taking place in the city centre for the Light Switch on, for which the Sheffield City Council expect 30,000 people. We  accept applications from all ages and backgrounds and will endeavour to find any successful application with a suitable venue.


  • Artists proposal: Please return by 5pm Monday 13th October
  • Voluntary intern position: Please return by Midday, Thursday 16th October
  • Light Night Steward (included in the intern pack): Please return by Midday Monday 3rd November
  • Venues already holding an event, wanting to be part of the programme or interested in having something curated in the space please contact asap

Why get involved:

This is great opportunity to showcase your work, try something new and use city centre locations as a platform. We want performers, visual artists, musicians, poets, comedians, community groups; anyone who has an idea that will support us to celebrate Sheffield and its creativity.

This is a competitive process and we are looking for:

  • High quality proposals that bring innovative creative activity into the city centre
  • Ability to manage and run a successful event (including all technical and safety aspects)
  • We will aim to have between 10-15 successful proposals.
  • Please note there is no funding to support submissions this year. We can offer support in terms of publicity, planning and delivery. If you are under 25 years old we do have access to o2 Think Big funding of up to £300. We are happy for people to sell or charge for entrance to their activity/workshops.
