Illumini is a not-for-profit organisation that provides free unique illuminating art events, for the public's enjoyment. Illumini promotes artists from any background and experience, who work with light, from visual artIsts to performers. Alongside the biennale Illumini events in September 2010 and 2010, in between these dates, there are other illumini events. We also help promote artists and creative individuals and businesses, through our website, with a directory of profile pages. Online resources for artists are available through the website and newsletters.
The aim of Illumini is not just to showcase art, but is to entertain, introducing all communities that may not normally visit the arts to a different approach; many being exposed to the arts for the first time. All visitors, including families, are kept entertained by the spectacular performances. The children in particular are able to interact with not only the performers but also the actual artwork. The founder Jane Webb, believes the arts should be free and easily assessable for all, and stressed this for the 'Illumini' events. This has been reflected by the number of people who attended, as well as the positive comments and feedback received.
