If you’re in Amsterdam in the coming weeks you can see the beautiful open-air Amsterdam Light Festival. Until January 23, 2022, the historic center of our Dutch capital is the stage for the most beautiful international light art. Twenty three works of art illuminate Amsterdam and the canals. The overarching theme is Celebrate Light. In the past nine editions, a total of 6 million people came to see the light artworks. This year there are adjusted times due to the corona measures. The light artworks illuminate the public space from 5.00 - 10.00 p.m. You can explore the lights with several walk experiences.
The Amsterdam Light Festival 2021-2022 showcases work by the greatest light artists from all over the world. The exhibition illuminates the canals with magical lights. The total route consists 23 light artworks, including a number of previous audience favorites and some artworks newly developed for Edition #10.

Every winter a new edition of Amsterdam Light Festival is organised, with artworks that are created especially for the festival. Next to that, in collaboration with artists, partners and various stakeholders, the festival organises special projects. The education project (in which hundreds of primary school students take part) and the collaboration with the Breitner Academy (in which young talent co-creates an artwork for the festival) have been part of every edition for seven years.
