Amsterdam Light Festival – 8th Edition


Amsterdam Light Festival – 8ste Editie

Managing director Frédérique ter Brugge sounds the gong to kick-off the education project of Amsterdam Light Festival #8.


With various educational projects Amsterdam Light Festival offers students a playful introduction to light art and offers a new generation of artists a platform. For example, 850 pupils from 17 primary schools together with the creative collective 72andSunny and Juf op Straat are creating a mysterious, daily changing work of art with dozens of animal eyes on the Entrepotdok side of ARTIS. Emerging talents get special attention every year in the exhibition as well: Amsterdam Light Festival collaborates with Amsterdam Smart City, the Breitner Academy and the Amsterdam School of the Arts.

About Amsterdam Light Festival

Each year, co-created light artworks by (inter)national artists illuminate the city centre of Amsterdam during the Amsterdam Light Festival. The eighth edition of the festival will take place from 28 November 2019 to 19 January 2020 and will cover an exhibition and an extensive program. During 53 days, the twenty light artworks can be admired daily

from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the historic city centre. All the works will be illuminated simultaneously throughout the festival period. It's one exhibition that visitors can experience by boat, by bike and by foot along several routes. For this edition, national and international artists have been challenged to work with the theme DISRUPT!
