10 October 2019 - 11 October 2019

Playgrounds has been around since 2006 and organizes several conferences and fest per year with different themes, but always in close contact with the creative community.

Time to take it up a notch we thought!

Berlin here we come! A week after The Art Department Eindhoven you will find us in Berlin on 10 and 11 October with a sparkling new edition of The Art Department, especially programmed for and together with the German community. Together with several studios, Drink&Draw Berlin and of course Firestarter Magazine we decided it was the right time to put up shop in Berlin. Playgrounds is a platform and meeting node for a large community of artists and studios. A Berlin edition of The Art Department enables us to meet you in an amazing city buzzing with creativity.

What to expect?

Character design, concept art, background visuals, character building, robotics, props: every single detail a crew has to think of and decide upon before they can get start actually making the film. For two days we immerse ourselves in the magic of visual storytelling.

The world’s leading and inspirational artists and designers meet up in the German capitol of creativity.

International artists and designers in a program of artist talks, demo’s, presentations, portfolio reviews, paint-overs & good food and drinks.
