OPEN CALL FOR NIGHT LIGHTS PROPOSALS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. INTRODUCTION

The Singapore Night Festival invites Singapore-based* artists to submit a concept for the installation of public light artworks within the Bras Basah.Bugis (BBB) district as part of Night Lights. Night Lights have been a key programming component of the annual Singapore Night Festival (SNF). This Open Call seeks site specific outdoor installations that relate to the place heritage of the BBB precinct. SNF is central to placemaking efforts in the BBB precinct. Proposed installations should aim at bringing alive a sense of community, unite Singaporeans through collective memory, prompt powerful social experiences and creatively transform everyday spaces.

*International firms/individuals interested in participating in this Open Call may form a collaboration with a Singaporean or Permanent Resident firm(s)/individual(s) to submit a proposal.
