Edition 11

During the eleventh edition we take you on a journey to the world of imagination. Get inspired by the twenty light artworks against the backdrop of Amsterdam and Imagine Beyond.


The world around us is temporary and can seem very different in an instance. We have all experience this very recently. However, the power of our imagination remains! With imagination we can exceed the here and now, to imagine the day of tomorrow however we want. Let the artworks carry you to different worlds. Look through the light and let your fantasy run wild. What do you see? Are we talking to lamps? Do we only have virtual bruggen? Does the water flow up? Join us on this journey and experience it for yourself!

The 20 light artworks are placed in and along the canals of Amsterdam Centre-East. From 1 December until 22 January the lights are on daily from 5.00PM.

During a memorable evening we put eldery citizens in the spotlight with specially organized cruises. Next to that, we involve younger generations through our education projects where we enthuse and teach them about the importance of (light) art.
