Architectural Lighting and Light Art Festival

In a year's time, dark Tartu will become a luminous lighting centre, bringing knowledge and warmth into the heart of the city and those of the people via the light. The main events of the Tartu Architectural Lighting and Light Art Festival, or in other words just TAVA2020, will take place from 28th to 31st October 2020, but the week before the workshops and the later side program will create a festival lasting almost a month. In cooperation with Tartu Valgus, the annual conference of the Outdoor Lighting Association LUCI (Lighting Urban Community International) will take place for the first time in Estonia, bringing together nearly 300 specialists in the field of light art and architectural lighting

LUCI conference

TAVA2020 conference is held with LUCI annual general meeting, which is the only international forum for cities on urban lighting and will feature panel discussions, workshops and open conferences on new lighting trends and projects from cities worldwide. Following AGM Rabat in 2018, and AGM Shanghai in 2019, the network will return to Europe for the LUCI AGM 2020 in Tartu, Estonia. It is a great honor and recognition for the realization of the visions of the City of Tartu and TAVA.


The Lightfair and the Conference will take place on the same time October 29-30, 2019, next to each other. The Lightfair showcases luminaries and other products for both indoor and outdoor usage with the aim of bringing together manufacturers and consumers and raising awareness of the importance of good lighting.

TAVA2020 is looking for partners and sponsors!

The main mission of organizing the Tartu Valgus event is to develop the field of lighting design, light art and electric lighting design by sharing knowledge, increasing the number of professionals and raising awareness of lighting of the general public. We sincerely thank all the supporters of TAVA2020 festival who share the same mission with us and make an invaluable contribution to the improvement of our common living environment.
