Summer Sessions Installation Call-Out 

Summer Sessions Installation Call-Out 

Lyth Arts Centre is excited to be bringing back Summer Sessions in 2023. This year, Summer Sessions will take place from 14th July to the 23rd July at the Rosebank Playing Fields in Wick.

With live music, pop-up theatre, workshops and much more we will be bringing a summer festival vibe to the event, come rain or shine!

We are now looking for proposals from local artists and makers to create an interactive installation that will bring the site to life. We are open to imaginative ideas that children and young people can interact with and be involved in the creation of. Ideally makers will use reused, recycled or natural materials for this. 


The Brief 

The installation should be; 

  • Vibrant, eye-catching and colourful 
  • Safe and able to withstand Caithness weather and winds 
  • Have an interactive element where possible
  • Use reused, recycled or natural materials where possible 
  • Use little / no power 

Install will take place w/c 10th July 2023. We have groups of young people excited to support the install as well as a full technical team. LAC will provide all relevant licenses, insurance and risk assessments whilst the artwork is on site. 

Deinstall will take place on Monday 24th July 2023. 

The artist/s should be available for install and take down.
