Lumen will take place on September 24, 2022 from 6 -11 p.m. in spaces throughout uptown Waterloo, Canada. Installations will be placed in public spaces to animate the uptown core. All work will feature the interplay between art and technology and should include an interactive, collaborative, or participatory component.

About Lumen

Lumen is an aunual art festival that brings together art and tech through captivating interdisciplinary installations. Installations should feature the work of artists while also testing the limits or functions of technological platforms. Platforms can be high-tech, low-tech or somewhere in-between – the idea is that there is an artful and explorative exchange between technology and creativity. The goal of the festival is to celebrate the great community spaces, places, and parks that are available for use by the community and to animate public space through creative temporary installations.

A successful project will include:

Opportunities for the public to engage through hand-on, participatory, or creative exchanges with the art
Strong connection to the project themes including the interplay between light, art, and technology
Viable and realistic project proposal
Innovative and creative use of the spaces available
Demonstrated ability to deliver quality art/opportunities/programs on time and in accordance with project proposals

Fees and Budget

Up to ten (10) artists will be selected as part of this open call. Selected artists will receive a fee of $2,000 (inclusive of artist fees, supplies, etc) for their participation in the festival. Additional resources like volunteers, tech support, or event set-up can be requested. However, these resources are limited so please include details in your proposal.
