The mission and objectives of the foundation
Lux Pro Monumentis Foundation
is a group of architecture and cultural heritage lovers, city well-wishers and fans of modern technologies and possibilities they offer. We are aware of Lodz's
great potential - citizens and unique architecture.
The main goal of Kinetic Art Festival of Light, Light. Move. Festival.
, established by Lux Pro Monumentis is a permanent change of city image that would lead to attract the number of people
seeking aesthetic sensations that can be provided by light and the latest technology. We believe that the Festival with its unusual form of exposure has a chance to alter the image of Lodz. Light as
a medium is the least intrusive and on the other hand the most effective way of getting the attention of recipient. Festival events are addressed to all people that are aesthetically sensitive,
interested in experiencing something intellectually stimulating, what light can provide.
Every edition of Light. Move. Festival.
meets with great interest of dwellers and tourists. Free and open form of the event allows everyone to participate. During each edition of the Festival the
intention of Lux Pro Monumentis Foundation
is to make Lodz for three days as crowded as possible and to help the city to become artistically inspiring for locals, tourists and people associated with culture.
The main goals of Lux Pro Monumentis Foundation assume:
a) promotion of cultural heritage and artistic activity by propagation and support of cultural initiatives;

c) stimulation of local communities by education, culture, art, protection of tradition and promotion of social cultural activity;
d) European integration and development of connections and interactions of societies;
