EDUCATION

Since the first edition of Amsterdam Light Festival in 2012 we actively try to enthuse a new generation about (light) art. Through several projects, we focus on primary, middle and higher education.

Primary Education

In collaboration with Juf op Straat around 1000 students from primary schools in Amsterdam learn about creativity, technology and light as a form of art, during various workshops. They contribute to a light artwork in the route, under the guidance of an artist. This year we have a special project relating to bridges and quays in Amsterdam.

PROJECT #11

It's also possible to join as an artist: for Edition 12 (2023-2024) our Call for Concepts has opened, where we are looking for creative concepts for the education project. Click the button below to download the Artist Briefing with all information necessary. Deadline: 23 October 2022.

Secondary Education

We work together with (technical) highschools for the project called 'Light Lab Technasium'. Students learn about the process of making a light artwork. As part of classes in school, they make protoypes which are exhibited during the festival. Take a look at de succesfull projects of Edition 9 and Edition 10.
