CZECH THE LIGHT is a series of cultural events, the light art of which is going to illumine historical towns and cities in the Czech Republic. Its ambition is to inspirit the public space and the UNESCO monuments by light art installations, video mapping shows onto iconic Czech architectural landmarks and by „light painting“ workshops. The project supported by the CzechTourism agency will travel from Kutná Hora to Brno, Olomouc and Český Krumlov, some events will also be held in Hradec Králové, Plzeň, Ostrava and Berlín. The highlight of the series will be the second edition of the Prague Signal Light Festival. Major Czech and international artists like Jakub Nepraš, Rony Plesl, Vladimír 518, František Skála, The Macula group, Wayne Garrett, Caitlind Brown and others are participating in the CZECH THE LIGHT project.
Apart from its major events, the CZECH THE LIGHT project will also offer a number of accompanying programmes. We will teach you the basics of the light painting, video mapping and light design at our workshops; in August, Prague will see an exhibition of photographs of the light installations. Families with kids should not miss the light painting in the streets, that we are also going to take to Plzeň, Ostrava, Hradec Králové and Berlin.
