The creativity and positivity that epitomized 2014’s Playful Arts Festival ensured it was such an important and memorable experience for attendees. By spilling into the streets of ‘s-Hertogenbosch and blurring the lines between our everyday life and playful participation it created a magical atmosphere for everyone.
