LEAP Blackpool Workshop Week


Light UpThe North is hosting a week of free workshops for artists who want to develop skills in projection-mapping. Led by imitating the dog & funded by Lightpool.

Participants will learn about imitating the dog’s approach to site-specific projection mapping work, from storyboarding, through basic animation and mapping techniques. During the week participants will be making a short piece of work to be shown indoors on a model and using software such as After Effects, Photoshop, Isadora and QLab.

The group will work with imitating the dog artists to learn about storytelling through projection mapping, developing techniques and putting them into practice to create a piece of work together.



This workshop is for developing artists who want to learn about projection mapping. You might be a visual artist who hasn’t done any projection mapping before, you might be into film or photography or another artform and keen to learn some new techniques, or maybe you are just starting out on your creative journey.

Submissions from artists currently under-represented in the light festival sector, including people from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse backgrounds, and those who identify as neurodiverse or disabled, are actively encouraged. Priority will be given to people based in Lancashire.



Apply for your free ticket here (applications numbers are limited) – Apply before Monday 31 October

Successful applicants will be notified by the end of the day on 1 November.
