ILLUMINATE PRODUCTIONS a not-for-profit organisation, presents contemporary artwork in unusual, yet accessible environments.

This is done by opening 'lost' buildings and identifying areas of geographical or historical importance, including interesting public outdoor spaces.


Illuminate challenges established and emerging artists to work in ground-breaking contexts, so their work can be bought to community and international audiences.
