    Lights in Alingsås

    Every year leading lighting designers from all over the world visit Alingsås. Each of them has selected a public environment in Alingsås in advance and has accepted the assignment to create exciting lighting with the help of students participating in workshops. The assignment is full of creative challenges and developing work. Besides the competence improving part, Lights in Alingsås is also a significant international meeting place for lighting designers, students, and trade people. The results are marketed and exhibited to trade representatives, the general public and the media during October.
