Light Installations

In 2019 we introduced an expressions of interest process for artists to submit their ideas and installations to be considered for display at HighLight. This helps us ensure that we get the right mix of local, national and international artist to showcase.
To receive a reminder when next year’s expressions of interest open please email with your contact details and any supporting information. Or check back here early next year for all the details on how you can submit your great idea for HighLight 2020!
