After a two-year break, Light Night is back for 2022 and our Art and Design students are taking part with a range of exhibits and a live performance at our Lace Market campus (25 Stoney Street, opposite the Adams Building).
This year’s Light Night theme is the ‘Rebel City’. This wide-ranging theme looks to explore Nottingham’s heritage as a hotbed of rebellion over the centuries and the way the city looks to do things differently to this very day.
There is no need to book, you can just turn up to 25 Stoney Street on the night and enjoy!
What's on and where?
Illuminate Exhibition – Friday 4th February 4.30pm – 8.30pm
Our Art and Design students are hosting an exhibition of their work in reaction to the theme of ‘illumination’. Students have been inspired by the work of other artists’ and designers’ in developing ideas relating to light, space and wider themes around the rebellious artist and designer.
3D Design (Level 3)
Don’t miss the work of our 3D Design students who will be displaying their range of free-standing, desktop and hanging lights, which they’ve made from a variety of different materials.
Abbie is in the second year of the 3D Design Extended Diploma and is progressing to the University of Portsmouth later this year to study Interior Architecture and Design. For Light Night, she’s designed a hanging pendant made out of blue polypropylene.
I really enjoyed the design process for this project and it’s exciting to be able to exhibit our products to the public.— Abbie
Illuminated Windows – Friday 4th 6pm – 9pm
The windows at 25 Stoney Street will be illuminated by the work of Level 2 Art and Design students who have worked on the theme of protest and rebellion, creating screen-prints and digital artwork. The windows will be transformed into a visual gallery space.
Art Protest Rebellion – Friday 4th 5pm-8.30pm
Students take part in a choreographed ‘Protest March’ wearing their own printed T‑shirts, placards and banners inspired by the ideas of ‘revolution and rebellion’ around themes that are most pertinent to young people. They will stop at key venues in Hockley and the Lace Market.
