Architects of Air desires to support initiatives that use the environment of a luminarium to create a special presentation. The smaller scale of a Lumini structure is intended to make hosting financially and technical more accessible to partners who would not normally have the resources to host a full-size luminarium.
Lumini collaborations may be initiated by the host organisation or by an animator / artist. Lumini presenters have included numerous arts organisations, festivals, schools, centres for children and adults with special needs and more.
10% of proceeds from Private and Corporate work is directed to support Arts and Community Lumini projects.
Some examples of Lumini projects:
- Ash Field Academy, Leicester, UK – a collaboration with Salamanda Tandem
- Brighton, UK – performance workshops collaboration with Brightonshed
- Milton Keynes, UK - ‘Art in the Park’, Islamic festival – Little Dome as a meeting place
- Trinity School, Dagenham, UK – a week-long residency with Lou Coleman
- Leeds, UK – I Love West Leeds Arts celebration
- Barnsley, UK, a workspace for design & build workshops and film screening
- La Mont-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland – Special Needs Centre anniversary celebration
- Parque de las Ciencias, Granada, Spain – poetry in a science museum
- CERN international nuclear research laboratory, France – photo projection
- Liberty Festival, Olympic Park, London – collaboration with artist Rachel Gadsden
‘Wow! What a fantastic performance. Amazed at how the performers really got in tune with my sons needs and adapted elements to make it a really absorbing experience for Harris. This was all enhanced by the environment and use of the Little Dome. What an amazing atmosphere. Thank you!’ Jade Hyhaim, Parent
“There was something really special about parents working creatively with their kids and the space lent itself to be a safe space where they could let themselves go. The space is a fantastically creative space to work as a group. Its shape immediately encourages collaboration, we always start our workshops in a circle to get that sense of equality and team cohesion and the dome does that for us.” James Dunbar, Brightonshed project leader
