After five successful editions, Amsterdam Light Festival will return to its city center for the 2017-2018 edition. From artists to designers, engineers to architects, and professionals to students, the festival invites creators from around the world to submit their creative interpretations of the theme EXISTENTIAL. Amsterdam’s world-renowned canals and various waterfronts offer visitors a unique way to experience multidisciplinary light artworks.
Amsterdam Light Festival presents two exhibitions, following two routes in Amsterdam’s city center, each with its own unique interpretation of the festival’s theme.
1. WATER COLORS is a boat route that takes visitors past artworks that either float on, hang above, or are positioned along bodies of water.
2. ILLUMINADE is a walking route with artworks that are staged in an urban area, including parks, squares and ponds.
You can submit a concept for either Water Colors or Illuminade. You can – of course – submit as many unique concepts as you like.
