Creative Europe project led by LUCI is looking for a Progressive Web App developer (call for tenders)
Light & Art in Public Spaces (LAiPS) is a new EU project that aims to strengthen city capacities on permanent light art installations in public spaces. It will do this by fostering transnational cooperation among cities, exchanging best practices, and making use of innovative digital tools. Led by LUCI, this 3-year project funded by the Creative Europe programme includes the cities of Lyon, Oulu and Turin.
Within this project, the partners seek to create a digital tool in the form of a Progressive Web App (PWA) with responsive design, which works standalone with mobile devices and web browsers, with varied levels and layers of functionalities to showcase light & art projects housed in the public spaces of project consortium cities and beyond.
We are looking for a PWA developer and designer who can help us create such a platform using Open Source PWA development tools and thus make light & art in public spaces more accessible to cultural operators, local residents, and tourists in these cities.
The project consortium seeks proposals for the full design and development of this digital tool, as well as its maintenance and sustainability over time.
More about the project
The LAiPS partners will work within the Light & Art Lab, a platform to visit each other’s installations and exchange about light and art practices and strengthen operational capacities of local creative operators, including city officials, technical staff and artists.
Participants will also develop a new tool to digitize this unique kind of cultural content, raise awareness about its existence and to make it more accessible to a wider audience. This will be done through the creation of a Light & Art (M)app, the digital tool the new developer will be working on.
Finally, the project’s dissemination will take place throughout the project. A final conference will bring together partners with a wider audience in Europe to raise the awareness on this type of art in public spaces and to launch the tools created by the project.
LUCI will manage the project and work on goals to be sustainable, have long term impacts and will actively involve a large part of its network of 70 cities and 40 professional organisations all over the world.
