ILP announces How To Be Brilliant programme for 2018

12th January 2018

(UK) – The 2018 How To Be Brilliant series of talks, organised by the ILP in collaboration with acdc lighting, will begin on 14 March in London.

The Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) is launching another series of How To Be Brilliant (HTBB) talks, beginning on the 14 March in London in collaboration with acdc Lighting. These events have proved popular, and demand from membership and the lighting community have influenced the launch of this 2018 programme.

HTBB is the ILP’s free series of evenings; designed for students, interns and junior members of staff, it is open to all from lighting or other allied disciplines. The events offer a warm welcome to anyone looking for some inspiration and expertise from more experienced lighting design professionals.

In 2017, The ILP had people attending from all parts of the world and from a wide range of backgrounds in different areas of lighting, as well as artists, architects, electricians, theatre staff, photographers and all sorts of other specialities.

As the ILP is a charity, they strive to ensure that their activities provide a public benefit. For HTBB, that is by inspiring and guiding people to provide better, more interesting, dramatic or exciting lighting for places our citizens use: from educational and medical facilities, to social and community places, working environments, and the outdoor public realm.

This year’s speakers will talk about lighting in a way formal education doesn’t always cover, as alongside art and science, other subjects of discussion will potentially include geography, religion, music, architecture, film, history, sociology, TV, fashion, festivals, astronomy, environmentalism, politics, psychology, theatre and well-being.

2018’s How To Be Brilliant evenings will begin on 14 March in London, at the Body and Soul Building on Rosebery Avenue just ten minutes’ walk from Farringdon station.

The first three speakers for 2018 will be; Christopher Knowlton from 18 Degrees Below on 14 March; Sally Storey from Lighting Design International on 25 April; and Lisa Hammond from Gravity Design Associates on 23 May
