Bright & Wild Young Artist Commissions 2021

These projects were commissioned by the Young Artists in 2020 and they worked together with their Lead Artists, creating and devising these works together.


Originally imagined for the ‘in real life’ stage, the Lead and Young Artists have navigated challenge after challenge to bring these films to life during the pandemic. 

The films were presented online at Lyra's Bright & Wild Festival in June 2021.
