We invite you to walk along the illuminated trails and take part in this very special event that combines the enchanted atmosphere of the Old City with innovative and challenging installations.

The International Light Festival in Jerusalem will celebrate its tenth year in 2019. As part of the program of the festival, we are calling for artists to receive offers according to the specifications below.


The festival will be held in the Old City area of Jerusalem, and the visitors, over 950,000 last year, will view the works of art at the festival, in the alleys and in the squares of the old city and its surroundings.

Special attention is paid to the sensitivities involved in the Old City as a holy place for Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The festival avoids dealing with political issues and concentrates on artistic performances only.

The International Festival of Light in Jerusalem will celebrate in 2019 its 11th edition. For this occasion, we issue this call for artists in order to receive proposals for light art installations and mapping projects according to the following specifications.


The Festival takes place in the Old City of Jerusalem area, and its visitors - over 950,000 in only one week last year - perceive the artworks in the Festival walking through trails in the Old City's alleys, squares and its surrounding.


Special attention has to be put on the sensibilities surrounding the Old City, as a Holy place for Judaism, Christianity, Islam and other religions. It is therefore essential that all projects will be inclusive and not offensive to any belief. We also avoid political issues as the Festival concentrates on artistic presentations alone.
