Think big. Think bright.  Think sparkly in the night.

Responsive: Light and Art Projects, Halifax/Cologne is an international light festival coming to Halifax next year. NSCAD University is one of the Halifax partners for the festival, along with Dalhousie University, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and Halifax Regional Municipality. The week-long festival will kick off in Halifax, from October 14 to 21, 2017, and the following year, take place in Cologne, Germany.

The next lecture in the NSCAD Public Lecture series on Tuesday, November 22 will provide an introduction to the festival, as well as two of the people involved from Cologne: Detlef Hartung, an artist who works with light, and curator Bettina Pelz. The lecture takes place from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm in Paul O’Regan Hall, Halifax Central Library.

“This light festival will allow us to showcase a kind of work that we typically don’t see in Halifax,” says Melanie Colosimo, director of the Anna Leonowens Gallery. “It will take place over one week next October in multiple locations, so people will have time to experience it in different settings and with different conditions.”

The kinds of work being considered include large-scale projections, animations and light sculptures, often with an interactive component. And, as the name suggests, the work will be responsive to the environment in which it is viewed.

While in Halifax, Hartung and Pelz will meet with the Halifax team of the festival, including co-curators Colosimo from NSCAD and Peter Dykhuis, director/curator at Dalhousie Art Gallery, advisor Ralf Seippel, Sarah Fillmore, chief curator at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and Jamie MacLellan, public arts facilitator for HRM. They’ll be looking at possible sites, securing locations and considering artists to approach.

2017 is shaping up to be an interesting year: as well as being Canada’s 150th year, it will be NSCAD’s 130th, and the centenary of the Halifax Explosion.
