Lighten Up 2016, Southampton

“Lighten Up” is a live drawing and performance event organized by Solent Showcase Gallery and Solent University Southampton. The 2016 edition took place on October 22nd and turned the Southampton Guildhall into a giant canvas. The show featured the work of artists Joe Ross, Andreea Stan and Alys Scott Hawkins, who were using the Tagtool app. OMAi artist Matthias Fritz was on location to support the event and make sure everything was running smoothly.

The project built on the success of the first Lighten UP event in 2012, and incorporated music and dance performances through collaborations with the Mayflower Theatre and Soco Music.
