Tartu Light 2016 or TAVA16 will be the first ever light and art festival to take place in Tartu. Tartu, Estonia’s second largest city and a university hub will be lit up with lighting installations from the middle of October 2016.
As a part of the festival there will be three lighting design workshops carried out in the public space and inner city of Tartu. The objective of these workshops is to be an experimentation ground for lighting in the public realm. It aims to investigate and improve Tartu’s current urban lighting and to create real size prototypes for citizens and visitors to experience.
As a second objective, these workshops are a platform to learn, to give people the chance to get hands-on experience in working with light and lighting equipment. Workshop instructors will guide the participants from concept to realisation and educate them on the main aspects of lighting design. The work created during the lighting workshops will be a part of the light festival, which is open to the public from Friday the 21st till Sunday the 23rd of October 2016.
Early bird fees for participants until 19.06.16!
