On the occasion of the Amsterdam Light Festival, creative residency 72U Amsterdam has partnered with local artists and makers from Amsterdam Noord to create light installations on the longest outdoor catwalk of Europe, located at De Ceuvel.

The installations are made through the “HET WARE NOORDEN” philosophy and will showcase up-cycled objects turned into lights. They will be on view during the Amsterdam Light Festival until January 22 2017.

On various Saturdays during the Amsterdam Light Festival creative re-use sessions will be held where you can make your very own light and take it home.
