Interviews with Illuminate Bath artists

Artswork Media students have made a series of short films about Illuminate Bath, including interviews with all the artists. It's lovely to see the festival again on film.

Here's one to give you a taster. You can find them all on Vimeo

Shining Success for Illuminate Bath

I've been hopeless at blogging lately but now the festival has finished I have time to write about it. Over 20,000 people saw the projections and events which is amazing.

It was fantastic to see the big smiles on peoples faces as they came across the artwork and projections in the street.

21 different events took place over two weeks (1 – 13 November), showcasing creative work by over 100 students, graduates and staff from Bath Spa Uni. A further 100 volunteers and participants were also involved behind the scenes.

There are loads of great photos on the Illuminate Bath website

Can't wait to start planning the second Illuminate Bath which will be in early 2012, but I'm going to take a much needed holiday first!
