Spectra 2016 Residencies 


Aberdeen City Council is seeking to commission an arts organisation or partnership of organisations with experience of participatory engagement and a track record of producing high quality and innovative work. To engage Aberdeen’s school pupils and their families in the creation of a participatory work(s), linking the project with CfE and presenting the project as part of SPECTRA, Aberdeen’s festival of light in February 2016.

There is no prescribed form for the final work(s), for example it could be an installation, a series of sculptural pieces, a participatory performance/parade or celebration with a visual element. There is a requirement that the work incorporates light as a medium within the physical presentation, offers a quality participatory experience and demonstrates high artistic quality, innovation, and a celebratory sense of scale and inclusion.

There is a budget of £25,000 for this commission and the closing date for applications is 5pm Sunday 2nd August 2015.

Late applications will not be accepted.

Applications should be emailed to ewinram@aberdeencity.gov.uk and marked as ‘Light Festival Residencies’ in the subject heading. Alternatively, you can submit by post to:
