GLOW with kids

Kids at GLOW 2022

What are the most fun GLOW locations to visit with kids this year? Good question! And quite a tricky one because every work of light art at the festivalis suitable for kids, even if you're enjoying the view from a stroller. We highly recommend visiting these six spots, though. One artwork was even created by school children. Pretty cool, isn't it?

Ik zie, ik zie ... @Paterskerk

I spy, I spy ... a lot of happy faces! Together with Hugo Vrijdag, numerous elementary school children will take over the Paterskerk. A projection of self-portraits welcomes you, but what's waiting for you inside will impress you. There, a huge sea of 3D flowers made of luminous awaits you. The best part? After GLOW, the flowers will put a smile on the faces of the people of Eindhoven who couldn't visit.

a|rp|ay @Heuvel

Attention, attention: you're allowed to play! a|rp|ay is an interplay in which light and sound seem to become tangible. Nineteen beams of light function as wind chimes and move when you and your neighbor make a move. Whether intentional or not, you, as a visitor, create new melodies and harmonies.

Rhythm @18 Septemberplein

We don't think about it on a daily basis, but the smallest particles in our bodies are one pulsating whole. They are connected to each other and in sync, just like a swarm of fireflies. Everything moves along to the same rhythm, no matter how big or small. Rhythm lets you see, feel, and hear that connectedness.


Evolution of Life @Emmasingel 

Even though Eindhoven is one of the greenest cities in the Netherlands, we can't get enough of nature in our midst. Thanks to projections and sounds, Evolution of Life transforms the Emmasingel into an urban jungle with even more space for Mother Nature. 

Where are we going? @Lichtplein

What do you want to be when you grow up? What's in store for you, and what does the future hold? The art work, Where are we going?, is all about serious questions, clever technology, and light art. You may not find the answers to life in this interactive work, but if you take part, you can at least determine the course of the lights.


For young and old: Beacon teaches everyone the power of cooperation. Did you know that Beacon looked very different at first? Every part was chosen or conceived in a different country, from the body to the wickerwork. It's a beautiful sight with an even more beautiful message.
