About Amsterdam Light Festival

Amsterdam Light Festival is organized by the Amsterdam Light Festival Foundation, a cultural ANBI. Every winter a new edition of Amsterdam Light Festival takes place, with artworks that are created especially for the festival by upcoming and renowned artists. The entire festival process consists of different phases (Open Call, jury & selection, co creation, festival period) and takes up to 15 months. Through various festival themes, the artworks bring contemporary issues to light. Moreover, in collaboration with artists, partners and various stakeholders, the festival organizes special projects, such as educational and social projects. Next to the yearly occurring festival, the organization places permanent light artworks in Amsterdam, has an advisory role, and has an internationally traveling collection, which is managed by Light Art Collection (founded in 2017 by Amsterdam Light Festival). More information about what we do can be be found here.

We aim to use the universal language of light art in the public space to connect and enrich people.

We think that art must be made as accessible as possible, by bringing it to people. We believe that interventions in a familiar environment can lead to new energy and insights. By presenting light art in the public space, we are able to create an impact on a large audience: in the urban and in the digital world. This way we positively contribute to contemporary challenges of residents and visitors of the city.
