We are hosting an online forum for the Tungsten to LED Project on Thursday 09.05.2024 at 10.30am, on Zoom, and would like to invite you to attend!

Please share the event, and we hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Lighting designers Kevin Smith, Sarah Jane Shiels, and Sinéad Wallace have been leading the research to get a picture of how the industry is coping with the movement towards adopting LED units and intelligent fixtures across the island of Ireland.

To date, they have circulated surveys to technical managers, production managers, lighting technicians, and lighting designers. They are in the process of collating the responses, and they would like to share this information with our peers and further the conversation.

This research project is funded by The Arts Council Capacity Building Scheme Award 2023 and presented in partnership with Theatre Forum and IAST.

The Irish Society of Performance Designers is the representative body of scenographers in Ireland, a professional organisation run by designers for designers. The society celebrates, advocates, promotes, and supports scenographers at all stages of their careers by acting as an advocating entity, a national and international networking hub, and a showcasing and resource hub. ISPD fosters designers’ visibility as vital key players in the theatre and arts ecosystem, while championing diversity, inclusivity, accessibility, and sustainability.
