Bright Lights Remixed

Call for Submissions

An exhibition celebrating young people from Sunderland’s creativity!

Having evolved over the last 26 years, Bright Lights Youth Art Exhibition, has been a platform showcasing young artists aged 11-19 at Arts Centre Washington and over the last few years has been curated by Celebrate Different Collective.

This year we are bringing Bright Lights Remixed to Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens and we would love to invite you to submit your artwork. This exhibition will showcase previous entries to the exhibition alongside new works from young artists.

Bright Lights Remixed is open to artists that have had work exhibited previously in Bright Lights or the Youth Arts Exhibition at Arts Centre Washington. We would encourage past participants to submit artwork previously shown in the exhibition or we will accept submissions of artwork produced since.

Please complete the form below with the details of your artwork and submit it before Tuesday 26 July 2022.
