The Future of Light Festivals: Towards new models of collaboration and the co-creation of the “Beacon of Hope” project

This panel discussion invites speakers to reflect and share their visions about the future of light festivals, considering the backdrop of climate change and current societal developments. What is the meaningful role of light festivals for the future and within this evolving context? How do light festivals remain relevant for the local context but also internationally? How do light festivals adapt to have the most positive impact, with the least negative side effects?

The festivals in Lyon, Eindhoven, and Jyväskylä will reflect on these questions and provide the example of a new co-creation light art project, “Beacon of Hope” that attempts to answer some of these questions in terms of addressing local and international challenges and involving strong community participation. 


12:45-14:00         Lunch

14:00-15:30        Creative Lighting Pecha Kucha Presentations

These sessions of “Pecha Kucha”- style speed presentations will be an opportunity for peer-to-peer sharing and exchange in the field of creative lighting. Hear from light festival organisers, artists, and designers about creative lighting projects.
