LIGHT NIGHT at WaterFire - Providence, RI

Light Night at WaterFire
Providence, RI
Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

This is a day-long event that includes a geurilla lighting piece and gives students exposure to landscape and sculptural lighting with professionals. Students will have an opportunity to interact and learn with architectural lighting designers in a team environment while conducting a full scale mock-up of a lighting design concept on different elements along the river in Providence. At nighttime, the event really takes shape as bystanders at the event will walk around to look at the lighting designs that come to life, and students leave feeling empowered and excited about the power of light!

Note the guerilla lighting portion of this event is FREE and we would love to get as many students involved as possible. We will be meeting at 2pm, September 23rd, to split up into groups for the guerilla lighting in front of the Stephen Hopkins House.

The event includes a 4:30 mix-and-mingle reception as well, with appetizers and signature cocktails. Separate pricing levels exist for IALD (International Association of Lighting Designers) members and non-members.

For more information or to RSVP, please contact Evelyn Audet of Evelyn Audet Lighting Design at +1 401 435 3688. Space is limited – so RSVP now!


Eastern Connecticut State University is advertising two part-time positions that start in the early fall of 2017.

One is for an adjunct professor position to teach Set Construction and one other class.  Relevant experience and an MFA or other relevant terminal degree required.  It works out to about $4500 per class per semester.

The other position would ideally be of interest to the same individual, this is for a 19 hours a week university assistant to assist in the scene shop and our state of the art venues in the mounting of department theatre productions.  This is a hands-on position requiring stage carpentry, welding, and counterweight rigging skills.  Knowledge of scene painting, scene shop management, scenic automation, light and sound production are highly desired.  An MFA is not required for this position, but as I say both positions would ideally be held by the same individual.  This second gig pays just under $24 per hour for 19 hours a week in a 15 week semester.
