*Lighting design education*​ plays an important role in the TAVA2018
program. This time we welcome everybody to take part in the three different
workshops. We will continue with ​*IALD Architectural Lighting Design
lead by experienced designers from all over the globe: Dr. Amardeep M.
Dugar (India), Johan Röklander (Sweden), Ruta Palionyte & Silmas Rinkevicus

“Lighting design workshops with “hands-on” methodology are quite rare in
the world and we are expecting a big interest and lots of participants,”
said the curator of the workshops Sabine De Schutter. All participants will
have an unique possibility to work together with the world famous lighting
designers and co-create the lighting concept of three well-known buildings
of Tartu: St. John’s Church, Tartu Toy Museum and Estonian Ministry of
Education and Research.

The second target of the lighting design education of TAVA2018 is the ​*mapping
lead by video-artist Alyona Movko, who is famous for her original ideas in
the area of video art and mapping. She is currently driving the Eurovision
public crazy with her unique video mapping of the Estonian ​singer *Elina
Nechayeva* <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xf0Qg2r93gY>‘s dress​.

The results of both workshops can be seen and enjoyed by festival visitors
from around the world on October 25-28 at TAVA2018 Lightpath.
Also, TAVA2018 will continue exploring interactive art​.​ The *single-day
27) is lead by Varvara&Mar, a duo of local active artists who are also the
curators of TAVA2018 cityspace light-installations.

Soon after the workshop week, on October 25.-26, an international *Lighting
Design and Light Art Conference
 will take place. The speakers include experienced professionals who are
either working in or researching in the field of light, perception and
public space. The first day is concentrating purely on lighting design. In
parallel to the first day, a *Lightfair
 that connects lighting companies, service providers and manufacturers will
take place.
The second day, named “​*ArtistTALK about LIGHTart*
is more artistic and performative as it focuses solely on light-art.

Most of the *hotels and hostels*
<https://www.tartuvalgus.ee/en/for-visitors/accommondation-offers/> of

accomondation. Use this fantastic opportunity to educate yourself and make
new connections during TAVA2018 workshops and conference. *Register now!
