STRP BIËNNALE 2015
SCREEN ON | NO SCREEN
STRP brings together art, technology and experimental pop culture, and connects them to a broad and engaged audience. With its interactive art, light art, robotics, performances, experimental music and films, lectures and workshops STRP offers a glimpse into the near and sometimes distant future of our technology-driven culture.
The highlight is STRP Biënnale. Held every other year, it is the most versatile indoors art & technology festival in the Netherlands, in Europe even. Throughout the year, STRP organises activities that allows both engaged audiences as well as insiders to experience the extent to which existing new technology reaches into our visual and popular culture, the arts, but also our everyday lives.
Our mission is to initiate internationally high-profile technological art and creative innovation, and present it to engaged audiences. We are firmly rooted in, and inspired by, popular culture and the unique strength of Brainport as a top technological and culturally minded region.
STRP likes to involve technological businesses and educational institutions in its search for cultural innovations that stem from the latest technology. STRP has developed alongside the Strijp-S area as its home base, from a raw industrial environment towards an urban living lab for the 21st century. Covering almost 67 acres, or 40 football pitches, Strijp-S is the largest internationally recognised urban redevelopment area in the Netherlands and the heart of the Brainport region – which is among the smartest regions worldwide.
