Asociación de autores de iluminación

Spanish Lighting Designers Association (AAI)

Lighting Spain

The Spanish Lighting Designers Association (AAI) was created in 1998 with the aim of joining forces and obtaining greater professional recognition for the figure of the Lighting Designer.

Since 2014 it incorporates professionals of the video-scene (audiovisual content creators). It represents professionals in the lighting and video design sector from Spain and other parts of the world.

Most of the associates work in the performing arts sector (theatre, opera, dance, concerts, circus, etc.), but there are also associates working in television, architecture, events, consulting, teaching, etc.

The Association wants to become an important element within the lighting and audiovisual industry in our country, so it has the participation of collaborating companies, with the intention of developing training activities and training of future lighting and videoescenistas, as well as the expansion of knowledge of active professionals.

We are creators and we handle a very special language, that of light converted into emotions. When a project comes to an end and the light has fulfilled its mission to excite and communicate, illuminators and videographers share unique sensations that are difficult to describe in words.

From the association we want to share this passion for our work and make it reach all people interested in the magic of light.
