The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership invites designers to enter the fifth instalment of Light Therapy, a multidisciplinary competition to highlight and enliven the public spaces of Montréal’s downtown Quartier des Spectacles.
The project that is the subject of this competition will commission a work conducive to highlighting and enlivening the Place des Festivals. The Partnership plans to present the work for the first time between December 10, 2014, and February 2, 2015.
The total project budget is $225,000, before taxes.
The Quartier des Spectacles urges entrants to form multidisciplinary teams, so as to stimulate emergence of new cultural and artistic practices. By taking this open, transverse approach, the Quartier des Spectacles seeks to favour projects that spark a blending of perspectives, where frontiers between disciplines blur and the languages of design, the stage arts, literature, as well as the visual and/or media arts are amalgamated.
