The IALD Education Trust Celebrates "25 for the Trust"

The IALD Education Trust is proudly celebrating twenty-five years of supporting students and educators in architectural lighting design. Over the years, the Trust has been sustained by a generous community of lighting specifiers, manufacturers, and representatives who bolster the lighting design profession through their investment in the next generation of lighting designers.

In that collaborative spirit, the Trust seeks supporters to join in the 25 for the Trust initiative and help write the next chapter. There are a number of organizations and individuals already behind this campaign (click here for the current list of supporters), and all are encouraged to join these valued patrons and help shape the future of the lighting design industry.

As part of this jubilee anniversary celebration, the IALD Education Trust will be recognizing those supporters of the 25 for the Trust campaign during a casual reception event taking place at the IALD Enlighten Americas 2023 lighting design conference in Banff, Alberta, Canada on the evening of Saturday, 4 November.  Supporters are warmly invited to join the Trust, as well as students and educators in attendance, for a toast to 25 years of support, advocacy, and advancement of the lighting design profession.

Any inquiries regarding the EA23 reception or the 25 for the Trust initiative can be directed to the IALD Education Trust Director.
