Light Night 2020

LightNight 2020

Friday 15 May, 5pm-late
University Square, University of Liverpool

LightNight is Liverpool’s free, one-night arts festival which shines a spotlight on the city and celebrates our world-class cultural offer.

The Terrace is a new commission for LightNight Liverpool by artist Andy McKeown who will create an illuminated street of terraced houses, each one live mixed with different notions of what makes a home, created in collaboration with Liverpool residents.

Everyone is invited to contribute photographs or film to be included in the work, whether it’s old photographs of your family at the dinner table in the 60’s or the colourful fabric of your new sofa or your front door, we’re looking for images that capture your idea of home. It could be your shared student digs, a long forgotten residential street, a homely snap from the family photo album or even a pic of your beloved kettle – we’re looking for anything that makes a house a home.

The resulting light installation will be a colourful collage of photography and film through the years, exploring what Home means to people of all ages who live, work and study in Liverpool.

How to Take Part

Drop in Sessions

Have a trawl of the family archive and bring your old photographs or objects from home to be photographed by the artist Andy McKeown at the following sessions:

Victoria Gallery & Museum — Time, date etc.
BBC Radio Merseyside — Time, date etc.

Via Instagram

Submit photographs through your Instagram account. Add your post like normal and simply tag it with #LLN2020TPIC (it has to be set to public to work).

Make a 10 Second Film

Make a 10 second film clip depicting home life. For the best effect, stay still and keep your phone upright whilst you film the action – it can’t be any shorter than 9 seconds to work. Once you’re happy, add your 10 second clip to Instagram including the tag #LLN2020TVID. Add as many as 10 second films as you like and come along on LightNight to see your clips incorporated into the light installation.
