Spier Festival of Light Art call for proposals

■ Spier will be presenting its first Festival of Light Art from Saturday December 8 to Wednesday January 30. Each night over this period, visitors will be able to experience light and sound artworks throughout Spier. Entrance is free. The Festival of Light Art plays on the word light. Creatives – including designers, architects, light and sound artists – as well as students and institutions are invited to submit proposals for installations that will appear at the festival. Regardless of the theme, the works should be engaging to all ages, especially children. Preference will be given to installations that engender a sense of discovery and interactive play. Proposals must be submitted online at www.spier.co.za/festivaloflightart by Tuesday September 25. Spier will fund the installations, and choreographer, Jay Pather, heads the selection committee. Successful proposals will be notified on Monday October 15. For more information contact lightart@spier.co.za or visit www.spier.co.za/festivaloflightart
