ILP’s ‘How To Be Brilliant’ initiative expands to Edinburgh

(UK) – The Institute of Lighting Professionals has announced it is expanding its ‘How To Be Brilliant’ initiative in Edinburgh on 3 October 2018.

The How To Be Brilliant series is aimed at new comers to the lighting profession such as students, interns, apprentices and career changers and offers a variety of fun, free, friendly and accessible events.

As one of the first independent professional bodies in the lighting industry, the ILP approached renowned lighting designers, who students wouldn’t normally get to meet. These designers agree to give a talk about something that wouldn’t tend to be covered in formal education and stay for the evening to talk to attendees on a one to one basis. The initiative has been running in London since 2014, with the support of acdc, and has created a diverse community interested in lighting design.

The Edinburgh session will be given by Malcolm Innes from the School of Arts and Creative Industries at Edinburgh Napier University, and is entitled ‘True Colours: Explorations in Art, Design and Research’.

All are welcome at the event and free places are bookable at:
