Lux Helsinki 2020

“Partnering with Lux Helsinki is extremely important for us on an emotional level. If you look back in time a few years, you cannot underestimate the importance of Lux Helsinki for Finnish light and video art. Having an annual event of this scale has created enormous opportunities for artists. In addition, Lux Helsinki has served as a fine example for many smaller events throughout Finland. Being involved in this is a source of constant pride for us.”

Matti Jykylä, chairman of the board, Sun Effects

“Light can help build a sense of community: shared experiences and joy that everyone can contribute towards. The dark time of the year is much easier to cope with together than alone.”

Piia Matilainen, Community Manager, SATO

“Art and culture are very much present at Hanaholmen all year round, and teaming up with Lux Helsinki further adds to this, creating new experiences for our visitors in the form of light art.”

“Light art creates joy and an exciting atmosphere in the built environment. The cultural-historically important park environment at Helsinki Zoo combined with the winter darkness create a fine setting for light art, as well as social conditions for enjoying the outdoors.”

Light art delights locals and enhances their wellbeing. Promoting urban culture is also close to our heart, and light art is a brilliant way of bringing buildings to life during the darkest time of the year.”

Bringing people together during the darkest time of the year is a great way to invest in a more enjoyable city.”

Antti Kerppola, CEO, Ylva

Kimmo Tupala, Marketing and Communications Director, UNICEF Finland
