Brief Description

Lakes Ignite events is seeking to commission five unique works of visual art that will be promoted collectively under the Lakes Ignite banner. Lakes Ignite is looking for projects that are innovative or artistically challenging to raise the profile of the Lake District; to confound traditional perceptions of the cultural offer in area; and ultimately, to attract visitors from out of the county. With the recent designation of the Lake District National Park as a new World Heritage Site for its cultural landscape, the Lakes Ignite commissions should respond to the theme ‘Cultural Landscape’. The focus should relate to one or all of the three themes for which the inscription was given: 1) Identity – the way man’s interaction with the landscape has shaped what we see today 2) Inspiration – a landscape that has inspired, and continues to inspire, artists, writers and visitors 3) Conservation – a landscape that is worth preserving for future generations.
