GLOW is looking for artists

Be a part of GLOW 2023

It’s the city makes GLOW. Each edition includes 30 to 35 light artwork projects by Dutch and international artists. For the past 17 years, these works have been displayed every November in the centre of Eindhoven and surrounding areas.

Now we are looking for creative people for the 2023 edition ‘The Beat’. For and with Eindhoven, its residents and visitors. You are warmly invited to participate in The Beat from 11 to 18 November 2023.

‘The Beat shines a spotlight on the rhythm and the energy of the city. It looks inwards and represents the city’s pulsing heart. A movement, a rhythm, a beat. It connects and flows with the masses.’


Interesting work starts with imagination. That’s why we’re asking you this open question: 

What is The Beat for you? And how would you depict this using light?

Answering this question enables us to join forces in searching for an idea that can lead to a fitting project within the rhythm of The Beat. Note! We will use all answers and ideas in GLOW 2023, but not all answers will result in a project.

Are you a light artist, talent, member of a collective or someone who always comes up with fresh new ideas? Then just answer the question and become part of GLOW 2023..
