The theme of the 2019 edition: EuropeLights
The theme of this edition – EuropeLights – is meant to celebrate the role that Romania will be playing in Europe throughout this period both in its capacity as a country that will hold the presidency of the Council of the European Union for six months and as the protagonist of the Romania-France Season; it will include light installations created by local and international artists, which will turn the city into a digital art exhibition. Through the installations that make use of light in a creative way, the theme EuropeLights is meant to capture a series of relevant characteristics related to the European identity.
