The CL research programme is perfectly aligned with our mission: social innovation through lighting.

Configuring Light received the HEIF5 knowledge exchange and impact funding from the London School of Economics to host a one-week workshop between lighting design professionals, urban planners, designers and social scientists on Peabody's Whitecross Estate on 13-17 October 2014: Urban Lightscapes/Social Nightscapes.

The event will be co-led by project partner the Social Light Movement (the organization that has considerable experience in running practice based workshops designed to take lighting professionals and urban planners) and will bring together lighting design professionals, architects, designers and social scientists.  The workshop will be focussed on helping to improve outdoor spaces at Peabody's Whitecross Estate in Islington (north London) via a design intervention. This workshop has three elements: a training part for social research methods in design, a research and design part where the designers create a new lighting concept for the Whitecross Estate and a symposium where the lighting concept will be presented to the local council and other stakeholders.

Due to the importance of the event we will be sponsor supporting the workshop. The CL research programme is perfectly aligned with our mission: social innovation through lighting (Have a look to our company presentation). The light is a key element to improve and to develop life and society.

CL will produce a short documentary on the workshop and the participatory desing process as well as develop a project website and showcase the workshop outputs in an exhibition at LSE from 25 January to 25 February 2015.

Configuring Light is a research programme of social science interventions into the configuration of light which is funded by the London School of Economics (LSE) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Being both critical material and infrastructure for social life, light is registred across a range of urgent contemporary concerns such as environmental issues, health and wellbeing, technological innovation and creative industries, urban planning and regulation as well as aesthetics and heritage. Despite this centrality, light is relatively invisible in social research. Being based at LSE Cities, CL aims at developing interlinked projects focused on the ways in which light as a material is configured into built environments by using multidisciplinary and academic-practitioner collaborations.
