WHO WE ARE:

Every year we try to organize a series of events called Guerilla Lighting to bring problematic poorly lit places in urban space into the limelight. Guerilla Lighting is a movement targeted against poor and wasteful lighting, trying to use contrast of light to point out possibilities of how to use light to alternate reality and, also, to change our attitude towards places that we have become used to avoid.
