The Institution of Lighting Professionals has arranged a series of events supporting people in the early part of their lighting career. Successful senior lighting designers have agreed to share their time and expertise with students, juniors and new entrants to the profession, to demonstrate things that aren’t always taught on traditional courses and will inspire, support and encourage the next generation.
How To Be Brilliant 2019, sponsored by Zumtobel, is a set of free to attend, fun, friendly evening sessions held in London and Edinburgh. They are open to all, with an emphasis on allowing less experienced students and staff to meet renowned industry experts face to face in a confidence-building atmosphere of encouragement and inclusion. All the sessions include Continuous Professional Development time.
- Colin Ball and Lora Kaleva, Senior Lighting Designers at BDP, will close the series on 20 November, with ‘The Colour Blue’ at Body & Soul on Rosebery Avenue
There are more Edinburgh sessions in development, with a similarly eclectic mix of people and topics. These will be announced soon.
20 NOVEMBER - BODY & SOUL, LONDON AT 6PM

Saturated Colour – Why the Blues?
Increasingly our cityscapes become saturated with colourful lighting installations. This talk looks at whether we have submerged our night-time environment in Blue, and if so, why?
A survey made it very apparent, that there was no consensus between lighting designers when asked why Blue was so favoured. This talk will offer a thorough overview of the colour Blue, in theory and in practice.
The session will be split in two parts: the presentation and a dialog with the audience. We will ask the audience the same questions we asked in the research survey and encourage a discussion on “Why the Blues?”.
