Light art enriches: it enlightens, it tells stories and it brings people together. Young and old, light art is for everyone. We aim to reach and inspire a diverse group of people through light.


Not everyone has the opportunity to visit the festival. That is why we want to enlighten those especially. Amsterdam Light Festival can act as a special day out, where people get together, tell stories and are inspired by light art! Want to know the possibilities for your organization?

Residents nearby and along the route are part of the festival. Each year we host a special boat tour for resident. We regularly ask our residents' council for advice and for our anniversary edition we've asked them to vote for their favourite light artworks. Are you a resident and would you like to get in touch? 



Every year volunteers help us to make the festival a great success. They are an essential part of the festival, for which we are very thankful. Want to become a volunteer for Edition #10?
