EAST BEACH STUDIOS, BN113QA
An exhibition of stunning, sustainable art installations that light up on renewable energy on Worthing’s East Beach. The event is free and accessible to all.
Worthing Light Festival is run by the East Beach Artist Collective (EBAC) based at East Beach Studios. EBAC was established in 2016, however we have existed informally since 2006. EBAC is a vibrant hub of over 25 artists, with years of experience, all of whom share resources, materials, skills and equipment. We reach out to all sectors of the community in a myriad of ways. As a not for profit artist organisation, we work collectively to promote our abilities as artists and craftspeople, organise events to contribute to the community and to enhance the cultural life of Worthing.
Creative Waves (CW), a local community arts organisation, will create an interactive light art ‘playground’. To inspire young people’s involvement CW will engage local schools, running workshops prior to the event to create a fun, interactive experience during the festival. To engage further with festival audiences, Poi Passion will deliver ‘fire and light’ performances. The Silver Sabre Sussex Academy will also be performing.
Professional artists/ makers /designers and amateurs can apply to exhibit a sculptural light or an installation using light suitable for an outdoor exhibition. All installations can only use renewable energy or a 12V battery. There are two categories; over and under 16 years of age. Installations will be judged by a panel (including artist Ali Lapper MBE) winners of both categories will receive £100.
