SKOPJE LIGHT ART DISTRICT 2020 – IS GOING GREEN


SKLAD remains as a symbolic bridge, a vivid link that unites art, technology and science, past, present and future, city and nature by using the language of light. The third edition of SKLAD is relocating in the 2020 to another splendors of the Skopje city. Focusing creative energies to connect the history and marvels of the ancient Old Bridge with the wonders of the Skopje City Park. Reaching from history, deeply into nature, among trees, meadows and lakes. Skopje City Park is not just the green, tranquil oasis and invaluable lung of our hectic city, but a very unique place to enjoy, to take care of and to be proud of. Searching inspiration in its beauty and treasures we aim to highlight this exclusivity by creating an extraordinary experience where nature, technology, science and art meet. SKLAD 2020 wishes to communicate message of environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible decisions and lifestyles, to help protect
the environment and sustain its natural resources, by putting attention onto the values that are so vivid and tangible in our own Skopje City Park.

SKLAD was established in 2018 with the aim to create a new cultural and social event with light art in focus. Through 2018 and 2019 editions, SKLAD has successfully established Skopje as one of the important contemporary light art scenes, by presenting high-level creations of the world’s leading artist, as well as highlighting the local art scene. SKLAD is also actively engaged to create a dynamic network with other regional light art festivals and events; a collaboration that we believe
will strengthen importance of Skopje as an emerging contemporary art center. In regards to this the public institution “Universal hall”-Skopje and the City of Skopje according to the yearly program for 2020 have pleasure to announce the following:
