In the last year, the UK has been host to several large-scale events, including the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Next year, Glasgow will host the Commonwealth Games. How do lighting designers approach such events? In addition to the design brief, what technical and logistical aspects need to be taken into consideration? This seminar will explore the lighting designer's role, the use of technology, and the importance of collaboration, innovation and imagination when designing large-scale events.
