Mayflower 400

Southampton is a strategic partner in the national Mayflower 400 commemoration and Audacious have been commissioned by Southampton City Council to create two light art experiences that ensure the anniversary is observed in a way that is informative, appropriate and inclusive, placing the story of the Mayflower ship within the wider story of Southampton’s role as ‘Gateway to the World’.

Using the theme ‘Journeys’ we are developing a large-scale light art engagement project at Weston Shore 5 towers with Artist’s Wild Strawberry Media Ltd and a laser poetry light art project with artist Gijs van Bon from The Netherlands in Southampton City Centre.

In August 2020 we will launch our full programme with many more insights to follow.
