GLOW Academy


GLOW Eindhoven is a pioneer in light art, and it’s no coincidence. Light is deeply embedded in the DNA of Eindhoven. But behind every creation lies a special collaboration. That’s why we have the GLOW Academy, where talent and expertise come together to inspire and innovate each other. Because only then do we continue to surprise and amaze.

Students & experts

The success of GLOW relies on a strong collaboration with established artists and talented students from leading educational institutions such as TU/e, Fontys Hogescholen, SintLucas, and Design Academy Eindhoven. The GLOW Academy, which takes place three times a year, provides a fertile environment where student teams can work on their ideas and projects for three hours under the guidance of a panel of experts from various disciplines.

In addition to these sessions, students are enriched with masterclasses from experienced light artists and experts, preparing them for the challenges of creating memorable light art pieces. This symbiosis of knowledge and creativity enables student teams to lay a foundation for diversity and innovation within light art.

The GLOW Academy focuses on sharing knowledge and strengthening the bond between the emerging generation, who have grown up in the digital age, and experienced professionals. GLOW recognizes that students are highly skilled and embrace the latest trends and developments, while experts possess an invaluable amount of knowledge, experience, and skills. The beauty lies in bringing these two together, and that’s what happens in the GLOW Academy.

Talent Award

All student teams participating in the Academy are automatically entered into the Talent Award. Each year, this shines a spotlight on emerging talent. It’s a platform where students can showcase their skills and creativity to a wide audience. Whether they become the audience favorite or are the choice of the jury, they win a cash prize in both cases and have the opportunity to further develop their project for the next GLOW edition. The Talent Award opens doors to creative innovations.
