About EILD

EILD , the Ibero-American Encounter of Lighting Design was born as a non-profit initiative conceived by a group of independent professionals passionate about light.

The purpose of this initiative is to build spaces for reflection and exchange to learn, experiment and share ideas among professionals and light lovers in Iberoamerica expecting to spread the initiative throughout the world. The spirit of the meeting proposes new ways of transmitting the values of lighting design, emphasizing communication and collaboration among all disciplines related to the profession. “Here we are all protagonists”.

EILD started  in 2010 in Valparaíso (Chile), then went through: Querétaro (Mexico) in 2012, Medellín (Colombia) in 2014 and Ouro Preto (Brazil) in 2016, always with the support and participation of well known brands of lighting manufacturers. lighting professionals, associations and national institutions of each host country and international ones.

In March of next year, EILD is welcomed by the city of Colonia del Sacramento, a city on the banks of the Rio de la Plata and recognized as the eldest in Uruguay. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the year of 1995.

EILD 2019 will orbit around the theme of “COMMUNICATION” generating spaces of co-creation and participation that convey the value of lighting design, developing theoretically and practically staging that will be settled in the city of Colonia.

The structure of the program is based on the combination of talks and workshops that deal with essential topics about lighting design (with light), with activities and interventions where lighting will be used as a mean to communicate (with light). The Meeting will take place between March 20 and 23rd, 2019.
