Amsterdam Light Festival

It’s getting dark early, the temperature has dropped – it’s the perfect time of the year to experience the magical Amsterdam Light Festival. We took a quick tour to bring some highlights.

and so the end is near……


It was the last show of the season and we went out on a high. By crashing into the debate about the changing Zwarte Piet. Greg was joined by Lauren Comiteau, Cole Verhoeven and Jonathan Groubert and discussed the how Zwarte Piet is changing his face and what this means for Dutch culture. Is this for the better? Does it matter? Catch the show here and see what they had to say. There was a lot to talk about, too much to fit into the show. So catch the second part of the discussion here. Who wants the ugly mirror held up to their face?
