Invitation - Second Webinar: FESTIVALS and communities (27th of May)

Dear all, thank you again for showing up during our first webinar (Money and Sustainability in Urban Games with @sebquack @will @mgrelewski). We had a very interesting discussion which turned out to be a great source of information - and possibly an opening of ongoing learning on the platform and a debate.

We are going to post the video in the next days, so if you missed it, don’t worry!

We received overall positive feedback so we are ready for our second webinar!

Save the Date: Monday May 27th, 5pm (Bruxelles time)!

This is the link to reserve one spot and save the date.

This time we are going to discuss Festivals and community.

Festivals were and are one of the first strategies that urban game Designers used to create awareness of the practice and also to meet and learn from peers, in this community alone there are a lot of organizers and in the last 10 years we saw and participate in a lot of amazing events.

We are going to talk about it with Maria Saridaki, co-artistic director of Trust in Play and organizer of the festival Athens Plaython, Gabi Linde, producer, game designer and organizer of the festival Playin’ Siegen, and Zoe Buter - playful culture curator at Zo-ii, former Global Game Jam director, curator & co-founder of the Playful Arts Festival.

One of the things that we have discovered during the first webinar is that 1 hour is too short!

So this time we are going to take 90 minutes and give everyone more time for the final discussion with the participants.

Webinars are great conversation starters, and this conversation can be then continued and taken into new dimensions on community platform. It’s an invitation: ask anything, and let’s use collective knowledge to share answers, ideas, practices and tips ;))

The webinar will be held in English.

We are going to use for the webinar, so make sure it works before connecting with us on the 27th. We will not be able to assist you while we are having the discussion :slight_smile:

See you there!


Registration: done!
Looking forward to this, and meeting @LindeGa and @zoewi !

A question for later or
I’m curious how the impact, or what comes out of festivals is measured, and if it is measured at all, beyond tickets and audicence numbers… In terms of people engaged in new practices, new collaborations etc?

What is the story we can tell others to advocate for more deep culture events?
