“I dare say that Lux Helsinki is one of the top 10 light art festivals in Europe and perhaps even on a global scale, both artistically and technically. Lux Helsinki compares favourably with many leading international festivals. This is backed up by the feedback I have received over the years from my international colleagues. The best thing is that Lux Helsinki has given us the opportunity to develop the standing of light and video art in Finland, as well as to give something back to this field of the arts. It has given us a lot, and Lux is the perfect channel for promoting it in a variety of ways.”

“The darkness is a common challenge for all of us here in the North, so why not fight it together? When everyone goes outside and walks together along the route, Lux Helsinki manages to transform the centre of Helsinki into everyone’s shared backyard during the darkest and coldest time of the year. This quiet, beautiful and bright communal event reflects our idea of what it should be like ideally to live in the same building with our neighbours.”

For us, Lux Helsinki means engaging in the everyday lives of locals and spreading joy amidst the darkness.”

“The communal appeal of Lux Helsinki and the power that puts art into motion are things that we want to be involved in.

“It’s great that Lux Helsinki lights up the city and cheers up locals and visitors during the darkest time of the year. In addition to aesthetics, light is an important safety element all year round. It would be nice if Lux Helsinki inspired decision-makers to develop the city’s lighting in terms of both aesthetics and safety.”

– CEO Ville Ketonen, responsible for safety during the festival, Local Crew
