Open Call Playful Arts Projects

We are looking for playful arts projects to run during Playful Arts Sessions on June 3, in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.

On Friday 3 June Playful Arts Festival organises Playful Arts Sessions. A vibrant day full of play, performance and visual arts to stimulate social interaction. The beautiful renovated Willem II Fabriek in ’s-Hertogenbosch (NL) is our home base for the day. Here you can explore and experience new playful arts (in development) and meet other creative professionals.

Our program is not yet complete! We’ve left some spots open for you to fill in. It can either be a playful installation or a temporary event, an improvised play, a dance, playful intervention, performance, game, a story or any other form that challenges visitors to playfully engage with the work.

The theme of the day is Bodies at Play. We’re specifically on the look-out for physical objects, playful structures, movements or actions and we have an interest in playing with the senses or using the body as interface.

Submit here.

Rapid Talks

We are also doing a rapid talks session in which creative professionals / artists can share thoughts about their work in relation to playful bodies & playful arts. Interested? Send us an email via hello[at]playfulartsfestival.com.
