What is the ALD?

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.
