Due numerous incidents of WordPress hacking we have been forced to move the guerrillalighting.net web site to a new location and platform. At the same time we’ve given it a bit of a spring clean and updated its presentation.
Hopefully this new format will make it easier for us to post updates and keep you up to date with the latest missions. We can also add your activities and help you promote work and the wonderful world of light!
Guerrilla Lighting Valoa Oulu – the movie!
Check out this video we made of the guerrilla lighting missions in Oulu – its a bit manic but we think its fun!
The action from the Guerrilla Lighting in Oulu and Oulunsalo was undertaken as part of their first light festival in November 2013. It was filmed entirely on a head mounted GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition – hence the manic camera work!
Is Guerrilla Lighting a good method of engaging communities?

Mission Date - 22/11/2013
Following the success in Oulu the team leaders and our intrepid photographer journeyed out to Oulunsalo for a saturday night guerrilla lighting extravaganza. The local residents and lots of the children joined us and made some wonderful images in the snow filled landscapes.
As before, the images were captured by Saida Inkeri Jäntti.
Mission Date - 21/11/2013
On Friday 22nd November we went out on the streets of Oulu with the local residents, students and children to create five guerrilla lighting installations! The participants were great, the team leaders legendary and the photographer was a true professional! We had a fantastic time and were really pleased with the results. The project was created as part of the first Oulu Lighting Festival.
The images in the gallery were captured by Saida Inkeri Jäntti.

This Guerrilla was done with charity workers. They gather money to support education in Nigeria (http://www.kolors.be/), local sports clubs, catholic women and special child daycare centre… So, Guerrilla goes charity! Not a bad idea!
Event organised by City of Light Jyväskylä and City of Hasselt.
