Lyon Light Festival Forum 2023

Since 2002, LUCI Association, in collaboration with the City of Lyon, organises an event during Lyon’s Fête des Lumières, expanding into the Lyon Light Festival Forum (LLFF) starting in 2012. Coinciding with the magical atmosphere of Lyon’s world-renowned light festival, the LLFF offers cities – as well as lighting professionals from a wide range of backgrounds – a unique and original, qualitative human sized space to meet, share, discuss and debate.
