The first Playful Arts Festival took place in 2012 in Den Bosch. The event was curated by Zuraida Buter (zo-ii) and was developed in collaboration with Iris Peters of Wave of Tomorrow (previously bART/DW) into a 3-day event at @DeBoo.
With the theme Collaborative Play, the audience was invited to play together. We had games from national and international designers (Hokra, ibb and obb, Samurai Gunn, Fingle etc.) a workshop ‘handclapping games digitized’ by PAF12 special guest Kaho Abe and a ‘Performance Night Out’ evening where ‘spectacle’ games could be played.
