The organizers of the festival are an independent group of animators, artists, scientists, activists and creators associated with several Tri-City organizations: Hevelianum, Hackerspace Trójmiasto and CUMY Open Workshop. They combined their strength and resources to do something that had never happened before – a festival created from the bottom up, by the people, for the people, without a curator, without a manager, without restrictions.

The goal of the collaboration is to build something more than just a few light installations. According to the organizers, the Festival of Light will be an annual celebration that integrates the local community. Everyone is invited to participate and contribute to the event. So, if you have a crazy idea that you want to implement – join the creation of new versions of the festival.
