Where can I find the light artworks?
We're placing light artworks throughout the city, in Amsterdam North, West, Centre & South, to prevent groups of people coming together. The light art is meant to enlighten inhabitants and passers-by and we will share the stories online. We won't share the dates and locations of the artworks - we believe this is not responsible under the current circumstances. Therefor you won't find a map on our website.
What will Edition #9 look like?
Unfortunately, we won't be able to organize the Light Walk and boat tours this year. You can read our full statement here.
How can I become a volunteer?
How nice to hear you want to be a volunteer. We'd like to welcome you next year!
