GLOW NEXT is a festival that is taking place in Eindhoven at the former Philips area, called Strijp-S. GLOW NEXT is a festival where the audience encounters new ideas, stories and experiences. Merging lighting technology, light and art, GLOW NEXT is building a community in which scientists, artists and industrialists inspire, interact and benefit from mutual expertise and experience. A place where experimentation and collaboration results in exceeding the borders of imagination. Capturing both the essence of light, now and in the near future.
GLOW NEXT strives to be an open playground for every innovative lighting initiative that strengthens the GLOW NEXT eco-system. Therefore, it also programs (in collaboration with its partners) several workshops, seminars and contextual conferences, to spark up imagination.
GLOW NEXT aims to connect the lighting industry to societal challenges like future lack of resources, healthcare issues, environmental problems and questions concerning ethics, safety and mobility. This mentality makes GLOW NEXT the international precursor of lighting solutions of the future.
