The Art Department Eindhoven 2024

Our Discord has been brewing quite a lovely community lately. For The Art Department however, we are stepping things up a notch. So if you’re up for adding an extra level of interaction to your TAD experience, do have a look at this cozy online space. Unconvinced? Read on and find out some of the perks we’re offering our PLGR Discorders.

If you want to meet new people during our fest, find cozy places to hang-out or get together with fellow creatives, you can already browse through our travel-buddies thread on Discord. Our server is also the place to try and get hold of available tickets!

During the festival we’re going to set up our very first Treasure Hunt! We’ll hide a special something, somewhere on the Klokgebouw premise, and we’ll be dropping clues on Discord about its whereabouts First person to find the mysterious object, will win a Playgrounds hoodie! We’ll have a Treasure Hunt for 18 and one of 19th of April!

Also, for the first time this year, audience members will be able to post their questions for the artists on our main stage (The Stage), right on our Discord server, in the mainstage-questions thread. The host will keep an eye on the threads and, if time allows, will select a couple to ask at the end of the artist talks. Groovy right?

On Thursday at 13:15 and on Friday at 13:00 we’ll be meeting in the Drink & Draw section for two small community get-togethers. Just to check out how everybody’s doing, answer questions and give users a chance to group together for activities.

We also have some special treats for the Discord users that won’t be able to join us in person during The Art Department. Our favorite artworks submitted in the Discord challenges will be showcased on a special screen during the festival. Even more, the amazing people from Drink & Draw Berlin will regularly post photos of the live models present at the sketching sessions. You’ll find them in the 2d-art-showcase thread, so that everybody at home can draw along! We’ll even print our favorite submissions and add them to the Drink & Draw corner.

Offline or online, no need to feel lonely during the festival days. Because we are with many and on our way to imagine everything!
