Terra Cognita

Satellite programme

Each year, Noorderlicht invites galleries, museums and other locations to join the festival with their own exhibition. All those participating venues in the festival are paramount to creating that 'festival spirit', causing many visitors to take some time off and see as much as possible. The exhibitions in the Satellite programme are organised and assembled by the locations or the photographers themselves.

Spread over the whole province of Friesland, you can visit 16 of these satellites. There is also a Church route, organised with the foundation Alde Fryske Tsjerken, with six photo exhibitions in beautiful old Frisian churches.
