Vilnius Lights Festival 2023 announces an open invitation to participants

The organizers of the Vilnius Light Festival are announcing an open call for creators and organizations to submit applications for the fifth festival, which will take place on January 25–29, 2023, celebrating the 700th anniversary of Vilnius.

“What can you wish for a young city celebrating its 700th anniversary? – To be sustainable, open to innovation, open-minded toward all of its residents and guests, to never stop writing its own lively story, ” – say the organizers of the festival.

Is technology and art compatible with the rhythm of the city? Perhaps architecture can take on new forms that can bring forgotten stories back to life? Do public spaces of a modern city of the future need courage and creative and original solutions?

“We entrust artists, creative personalities and organizations to find answers to these questions. To those who wish Vilnius to be young and progressive. Let light help you find what our beloved city needs. Let light show us all what Vilnius can be like in the future”, – says Paulius Jurgutis, the director of the Vilnius Culture Center, the organizer of the Vilnius Light Festival.
