In January 2013, one of the most prestigious youth events in Bahrain and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) took place at the University of Bahrain. The annual Sheikh Nasser Youth Creativity Award Ceremony 2013 is organised by the General Organisationfor Youth and Sports (GOYS) and aims to motivate young people in Bahrain and the Gulf, helping them to hone their capabilities and present creative projects which highlight the idea of youth and young people in an active way.
Pico was appointed to design and manage the entire event from initial design concept, event logistics, event and artist management right through to program planning and execution. Pico put together a lively program that included a spectacular ‘LED Lights’ performance by the European Neon Dance performers Vospertron and a rousing percussion performance put up by a group of youths from Arabs’ Got Talent’s Overboys. Particular attention was devoted to the deployment of stage and ambient lighting effects throughout the venue, which helped drive the event’s visual impact and overall effect.
