The last years we had the pleasure to have industry greats such as character designers Carter Goodridge (Despicable Me), Loish (Horizon Zero Dawn), Peter De Sève (Ice Age), Borja Montoro (Moana), but also amazing concept artists, VR heroes and world builders like Jama Jurabaev (Ready Player One), FX Goby (Back to the Moon) and Santa Monica Studios (God of War) on our stage.

We are looking forward to creating an extra-ordinary art experience upcoming spring. Expect artist talks, interviews, panel discussions, games, expo with original art works, workshops, an art market and everything we can think of to make this The Art Department yet another playground for the creative industry.

Update 18 April – all tickets are sold out.
