Amsterdam Light Festival 2022
December 1, 2022 - January 22, 2023
The streets and canals of Amsterdam will once more host the ninth Amsterdam Light Festival this winter, from 1 December, 2022 to 223 January, 2023.
20 artworks will be on display along the canals of Amsterdam Centre-East, from 5pm until 11pm. Details of what will be on display can be found at the organiser’s website (see below). The theme of this year’s festival will be Imagine Beyond.
Stroll through Amsterdam city centre, crossing famous squares and hidden gardens. Receive photos, videos and audio messags from the festival’s creative director Lucas De Man direct to your smartphone via WhatsApp. In this way you will discover about Amsterdam and nature, as well as light art.
The 6.5km interractive walk will allow you to decide whether you learn more about light art or the city of Amsterdam itself and its rich history. Organisers promise it to be both informative and humorous.
