    The idea of the light festival came from the Creative workshop Beepart director and local activist Andrius Ciplijauskas. He has finished scenography studies, and says: “As I am the scenographer, never worked and not really wanted to work in the theater, then the light festival is the place, where I can use my scenography knowledge in its all dimensions.” Beepart culture center was opened in 2010, and after it started to organize many activities, it also started to organize firs Light Festival Beepositive in 2011.
