Lighthouse Late sees Scotland’s center for design and architecture open its doors for a mix of speakers sharing their ideas and passion for design and the creative industries, bands, dj’s, workshops and films.
The third Lighthouse Late takes place on Friday 9 October with keynote speakers including:
Florian Urban, Professor and Head of Architectural and Urban Studies at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art. Florian will be hosting a talk on post-war urban design in Berlin and Glasgow.
Michael Stumpf (GSA MFA graduate) will talk about the inspirations behind two recent projects:’This Song Belongs To Those Who Sing It‘ an exhibition and temporary public art commission at Glasgow School of Art, as part of Glasgow international 2014. ‘Objects Converse on a Matter of Mutual Concern‘, a temporary public art commission for Art Across the City 2015 in Swansea.
Designer Rebecca Torres (pictured above) will compare and contrast with her views on Glasgow as a city for building a design business. Specialising in the use of luxurious sports led fabrics, Rebecca is renowned for her ability to accentuate and empower the female form creating garments featuring enhanced fit, stretch and comfort.
All speakers will come together to discuss what makes Glasgow such great creative place to work in.
In addition to the line-up of speakers, four Scottish bands will play; FOUND, Apache Darling, The Spook School and Supermoon.
Also programming workshops, Tea Green Events will be carrying out jewellery up-cycling and Cogs + Wheels will be showing you how to use pre-loved items and turn them into useful objects.
