22 May 2024 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Especially for students, interns, apprentices, and new entrants to the lighting profession!

How To Be Brilliant is the fun and friendly lighting event series organised by the Institution of Lighting Professionals in collaboration with BEGA. We are delighted to announce that we’ll be popping up in Clerkenwell Design Week thanks to our friends at arc media:

How To Be Brilliant: May 22, 2024

This event is an informal presentation set in the atmospheric basements of the old Clerkenwell House of Detention. So for those of you who love old Victorian buildings, with an interesting history, you are in for a treat.

Our speakers are Milssa Byers, Anna Friesleben and Abbie Hill from the Michael Grubb Studios based in London and Bournemouth.

Melisa is the Head of the Bournemouth Studio and has over 25 years of experince in Lighting Design, Cinematrography and Sterographing.

Anna is a Project Lighting Designer with a background in architecture and urban design.

Abbie is new to Lighting Designer and believes that Lighting is a crucial factor within design and architecture.

Their presentation Curating the Concept is based around breaking the rules, being free and not being formal in your approach to lighting.

So please come on down and support them at the House of Detention for this totally brilliant inspiring CPD talk. (Please note this venue does not have disabled access, due to the nature of this 19th Century underground building.)

All welcome afterwards at Optelma where you can network with Buro Happold ‘lighting heroes’ and badger them with your questions.

Hope you can make it – ALL welcome!

Talks are free to attend, and seating is allocated on a first come first serve basis – be sure to register for Clerkenwell Design Week at https://clerkenwelldesignweek-2024.reg.buzz/splash

The How To Be Brilliant series is brought to you by the Institution of Lighting Professionals in collaboration with BEGA. Their generous support means we never ever charge students, designers or ILP members to attend any of our series of sessions.

The talk is at 4pm in the House of Detention (we will email you explaining how to find this underground location) At the end of the talk we will walk with you round the corner to Optelma’s studio where you can ask questions, meet other people, meet the speakers, and the How To Be Brilliant team will be on hand to talk about anything lighting career related.

If it is your first time – or i f you are nervous about coming along, for any reason, please get in touch with us and we can support you!
