How To Be Brilliant: Red Shift

26 April 2023 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Especially for students, interns, apprentices, and new entrants to the lighting profession!

The Institution of Lighting Professionals invites you to this free, fun, friendly talk.

How to be brilliant: RED SHIFT – The Growth Of Red Saturated Light Since 2000

With the awesome Lora Kaleva and Colin Ball from BDP.

Red light has powerful properties – it has no effect on melatonin production, it maintains maximum iris width, it’s well-suited for night vision, and it makes us look younger. This fascinating lecture will explore the use of saturated red lighting in relationship to art, culture, history and neurobiology, and illustrates why it should be a tool in all lighting designers’ palettes.

Hope you can make it – ALL welcome!

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.

If you are a manufacturer who is not an ILP member, we offer you the chance to support our work by selecting the relevant ticket. Funds raised go to the ILP, to enable it to continue its charitable objectives.

Doors open at 6 and the talk will start around 6.30pm. At the end of the talk 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 if you are nervous about coming along, for any reason, please get in touch with us and we can support you!
