Stellar Projects, in partnership with Navigator North, are offering Tees Valley / County Durham based emerging artists the opportunity to develop their practice to create new site specific light-based works, with tailored support and mentoring. The resulting site specific installations will be showcased as part of Nightfall 2019.

This opportunity is available for artists from Tees Valley and County Durham who have not previously been commissioned to produce light-based site specific works, but who are interested in developing this aspect of their creative practice. Proposals should respond to the theme of moon inspired folklore. Successful applicants will benefit from a bursary which will include professional development sessions, individual mentoring, workspace and technical support.
