Light is a Right, Not a Privilege

The Social Light Movement is a philanthropic movement and has been founded in order to create a network for lighting designers and other interested parties to collaborate on the issue of improving lighting for people: particularly those who are unlikely to have access to good quality illumination within their environment.

From the Right to Light to the Right Lights

In a public event hosted by Parsons for the International Year or Light  and curated by IES education columnist and Parsons’s professor Nathalie Rozot, speakers from CLSF and SLM will present initiatives that range from ongoing projects in informal settlements in Haiti to participatory workshops in low-income housing environments. In a panel following the presentations, speakers will debate the role that socially-engaged lighting design practices play and how lighting education can support a stronger social culture in practice and discourse.

We are seeking sponsorship for the program: 
– Program Sponsor (1 x US$1,500)
– Event Sponsor (3 x US$500)
– Individual Sponsor (Unlimited x US$20)
