Mayflower 400

Southampton is a strategic partner in the national Mayflower 400 commemoration and Audacious has 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 the ‘Gateway to the World’.

Using Mayflower 400 themes we are developing a large-scale light art engagement project at Weston Shore’s five identical tower blocks with artist Andy McKeown of Wild Strawberry, and a laser poetry light art project with Dutch artist Gijs van Bon in in the City Centre’s Guildhall Square.
