Stone Arch Bridge open call


Northern Lights [2] is accepting proposals for performances, projections, installations, and other events on and around the Stone Arch Bridge during Northern Spark, June 4-5, 2011.


This call is for one project. The Stone Arch Bridge is a primary site and corridor for Northern Spark. It will be “home” to a number of project, including beneath a glowing ceiling veil of living light [3], Egg & Sperm Ride [4], and MURMUR [5]. HOUSEBOAT [6] and Nightmare [7] will both pass by the Stone Arch Bridge, and it is visible from Modern Monoliths migrating [8]. Each project proposal may only be submitted to one Northern Spark open call.

We are looking to commission a project that helps activate the site while being respectful of its location – it must remain open as a thoroughfare at all times. The project can be performative, light-based, participatory or any combination of creative and compelling activities, which last at least from dusk to dawn.


Northern Spark will provide the following to the selected project(s):
