Light Festival Working Group

LUCI Pillars Art and Culture

Based on 2020 discussions with LUCI members, the working group focused on light festivals was created to share knowledge, build capacity, and explore potential collaborations.

Ten festivals from around the world met online in June 2021 to exchange ideas between emerging and established light festivals.

The Light Festival Working Group met during the AGM Tartu in October 2021, to discuss the possibility of collaboration projects between light festivals. Participants also experienced Tartu’s own TAVA light festival.

Objectives and activities

The main goal is to open the field of creative lighting to new artistic forms in both permanent and festival lighting. The activities in this Pillar explore how a co-creation approach can be implemented among the members of the network, for example, through structured exchange and peer-to-peer capacity building sessions.
