Akeelah Bertram: Chorus. In the first of our 'Shine' series we cast a spotlight on returning Light Night 2013 artist Akeelah Bertram. Fresh from a group show in Berlin, an award winning 2013 (The Passey Prize in Art, The Vantage Art Prize with Adam Young and FUAM Graduate Art Prize) and a recent residency in London, Akeelah dropped in to Light Night Towers to tell us about this year’s exciting project.
'How the Light Gets In' is a creative writing workshop where participants can explore the ways in which words can and cannot lead us through the dark – both the literal dark of the nighttime and the winter months and other, internal and metaphorical forms of darkness. There will be a series of creative exercises, as well as a chance to share ideas and any work produced during the workshop. These workshops will feed into an interactive storytelling installation of the same name at Light Night Leeds, which participants will be encouraged to attend.
