Aim

The Lighting Design and Light Art Conference will be held right after the workshop week, when the lighting festival opens to the public. This professional peer-to-peer event aims to enhance knowledge exchange between professionals of different fields and industries and municipalities. It aims at educating participants by combining renowned speakers with newcomers of different backgrounds whose work is connected to light, perception, public space or research in any of these fields. 

With the conference we hope to connect artists, architects, designers, planners and students interested in the field of lighting design and light art. We aim to create a platform for knowledge exchange and to stimulate cross-boundary thinking in the field of light and lighting design.

First day of the conference is more academic and dedicated to lighting design. Second day is a bit less formal, more performative and dedicated to light art. As the format of presentations is open to interpretations, you can expect to hear artists talks but also enjoy short-length performances.

The event aims at introducing the invited artists to the public as well as creating time and space to discuss about artworks, practices and the curatorial theme of the festival.

Parallel to the conference there will be an exhibition featuring institutions and manufacturers who are currently important for the lighting market – Lightfair. This will give the different parties opportunity to strengthen ties between each other.
