EDUCATION

Ever since the first festival edition in 2012, Amsterdam Light Festival actively commits itself to enthuse a new generation about (light) art. With various programs we focus on primary, secondary and higher education. Around 1000 primary school students participate in our education project every year. Furthermore, we guide students from technical high school to create light art prototypes and we work together with higher educational institutions to provide a stage to upcoming, talented artists.

Primairy Education

In collaboration with Juf op Straat students from primary schools learn about creativity, technology and light as a form of art, during different workshops. Afterwards they contribute to a light artwork in the route, under the guidance of an artist. Curious about the projects of previous years? Click on one of the buttons below.

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.
