Winterlicht Light Art Festival


The Winterlicht Light Art Festival will take place in the Julianapark in Schiedam on December 12, 13 and 14, 2024. This three-day, freely accessible light art festival shows the work of ten to twenty artists of all ages and experience.

This year’s theme is Rituals. Rituals provide guidance in this world and connect people. You can think of cultural or religious activities, but also of daily actions that characterize life.

Winterlicht now invites artists to submit a proposal, connected to this theme, for autonomous light artworks or objects, installations, video and photo works. An existing work or performance in the theme of Rituals and light is also possible.

Email your proposal with a brief description including visual impressions and your portfolio to Also include an estimate of your costs and the technical specifications (including power consumption) of your work. Large files can be shared via

Deadline: June 9th 2024

A maximum of twenty proposals will be selected. The budget is determined in consultation, depending on the proposal. For compensation, Winterlicht follows the artist fees guideline. For more information and details, see below.



The Juliana Park is a public, freely accessible city park. The festival also includes an artist program with music, performances and (poetry) art. Most artists attend during (some of the) festivalevenings, which is highly appreciated.
