During the open call, we invite creatives to submit a concept for a lightweight piece of art. Professional artists and emerging talents can submit their ideas. After a careful selection procedure, the works will be co-created with the festival, which means that you will be guided and financially supported by the festival. You can request the briefing via the button below. In this document you will find more information about who we are, how we work and our preliminary planning.
The deadline for submission is Thursday, May 11, 2023
Edition 13 will take place from November 28, 2024 to January 19, 2025. The year 2025 is a very special year: the city of Amsterdam is celebrating its 750th anniversary!
Rituals have traditionally helped us through all kinds of transformations; from the past to the future, from winter to summer, from youth to adulthood. Rituals connect us to our community. Amsterdam Light Festival invites artists to perform and reflect on rituals that are meaningful to the diverse community of Amsterdam. More information on the subject can be found in the artist’s summary. For other questions, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.
