Would you like to be part of one of the world's leading light art festivals? We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to expand our team and man the info points throughout the route of Amsterdam Light Festival.

Volunteers are essential for our festival and they are our face to the public. Throughout the dark winter months we will transform the inner city of Amsterdam into a canvas for light art. For the eleventh time we will illuminate the city’s residents and visitors with a route consisting of twenty (inter)national light artworks. Will you help us make Amsterdam shine again?

This year's theme is ‘Imagine Beyond’: imagination makes it possible to exceed the here and now, to imagine the day of tomorrow however we want, to dream along and get carried away to places beyond the well-known…
