Illuminart Team “Highly Commended” in Civic Trust Awards 2014

Illuminart have been “highly commended” in the 2014 Civic Trust awards for the New Light Industrial project, in recognition of the impact on the local arts and business community.

The project involved presentation of over a dozen different events and installations over a two year period in Port Adelaide, culminating in a full time period of artistic residency in 2013. Projects included Night Mural 2013 and Night Mural 2014, Harts Mill Re-animated, Luminous Art Trail, Future Portal, and several R&D projects including the Interactive Quilt, Mood Lanterns, and Hopes Passion.

The project was supported by Arts SA (community partnerships funding) and also received project support from CAN SA, Renewal SA and Port Adelaide Enfield Council.

Illuminart is grateful for this recognition for our work in Port Adelaide, and the generous commitment and support of  partners,  local artists, organisations, businesses and volunteers, without whom the project would not have been possible.
