Association of Lighting Designers
The Association of Lighting Designers is the professional body representing all those who work or are interested in the creation of lighting, video & projection design for live performance and events.
Whether you are a Designer, programmer, production electrician, or crew member, the ALD aims to further the art and appreciation of creative design using light in all its forms as part of the creative process. Its members are drawn from across the fields of theatre (including Opera and Dance), Rock and Roll, corporate presentations and events, education and manufacturing.
We aim to bring together all those involved in these important supporting roles to share their experiences, knowledge and guidance to their peers and future generations and help raise the professionalism and recognition of the art and creative input of manipulating the use of light in live performance.
The ALD is a constitutionally formed Association run by an Executive Committee who report to the general members. The Executive deals with the day to day running of the association, formulating policy for ratification by the members, fielding enquiries from members and managements, representing members on other bodies and committees, publishing the Association’s magazine and other publications, setting up members’ meetings, entertainment, classes and organising the membership and finances of the Association.
In addition to the Executive, a number of working groups discuss and action particular specific projects that are either intiated by the Executive Committee or the membership itself.
