ILLUMINUS is a free nighttime festival where Boston’s artists, designers, performers, and creative technologists converge to showcase their most thoughtful, innovative, and imaginative works. In the past ILLUMINUS has taken place in the SoWa district of Boston and on Lansdowne Street. In 2017 ILLUMINUS has partnered with LuminArtz and the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District (BID) to present the festival throughout this Downtown neighborhood. The Festival will not be centralized in one location, but spread through the neighborhood streets – taking over plazas, alleys, and building facades, creating a captivating network of installations for people to explore and enjoy.

For 2017 ILLUMINUS is seeking for exhibition innovative projects that cross disciplinary boundaries and engage a diverse public audience for exhibition. Individuals and creative teams are invited to submit new or existing works for consideration. You may propose more than one piece and submissions may include scalable versions of the work. We accept submissions for projects in any medium but give special consideration to projects that fall in the following categories:

  • Light, Sound or Projection Installations
  • Audio/Visual Performances
  • Interactive or Participatory Projects
  • Experiential Art Installations
