What is International Lightfestival Organisation

For over three years, the International Light festival Organisation (ILO) has been uniting European and worldwide light festivals. The ILO members are the core element which makes the Organisation an open, influential, international place for any light festival that wants to be a part of a light festival community.

Light festivals have been working together internationally since the very first developments of light festivals. ILO brings light festivals together to inspire one another, to foster an exchange of knowledge, to help the festivals with ideas , to search for solutions, increase networking opportunities, and keep festivals informed about issues at stake in the festival and cultural world. All from a viewpoint of artistic excellence and internationalisation.
