We Are Playgrounds is a platform that showcases and celebrates the creative image. We stimulate new developments, signal innovative movements, we inspire an international creative industry and connect you to the best and brightest artists and animators, extraordinary filmmakers, game-, sound- and graphic designers.
Since 2006 we have organized several Playgrounds festivals and conferences. What was first a yearly event turned in 2017 into a bi-annual momentum where the international creative industry comes together. Where you get inspired by artist talks, workshops, films and masterclasses. Where you meet your biggest heroes and witness mesmerizing performances.
In the spring, we offer you Playgrounds Blend with a catwalk of cutting edge creativity and focus on trailblazers and audio-visual innovators. In autumn, we have Playgrounds The Art Department putting in the spotlight the design process of films, animations and games.
And we bring you even more….
Throughout the year, we present multiple Playgrounds Sessions: our fest in a box! One night only events with lectures by cutting edge artists. Playgrounds Expos showcase original artworks, short films and fresh graphic design. And each year we support amazing talents in our tailor-made talent program Next, together with partners Submarine Channel, The Panics, BROET, Natlab, Herrie Film & TV, BredaPhoto, Art Academy St. Joost and Kaboom film festival.
Online, our platform provides the community a variety of curatorial series and various forms of content about the industry and its artists to watch.
