STRP Festival 2020

STRP is moving to the centre of Eindhoven.

STRP was one of the pioneers of Strijp-S back in 2006. We are proud that we were able to make a significant contribution to the identity and branding of this area. Now, in 2020, it is time for STRP to once again take on a pioneering role in a new area that will undergo huge changes in the coming years, the centre of Eindhoven.

STRP Festival will be more in 2020. More extravert, more compact, more open, more dialogue, more interactivity. We will be digging deeper and touching more philosophical and social issues.

Welcome to the new STRP!

STRP Festival 2020 will take place from 2 to 5 April and consists of an international expo, an extensive STRP Scenario programme with many speakers, an educational programme and a varied music and performance programme in the evenings, in collaboration with four new programme partners including EMOVES, PLASMA and Muziekgebouw Eindhoven.

DOMUSDELA, in the heart of Eindhoven, is the new main location for STRP festival 2020. This is where you will be able to visit the exhibition and join the STRP Scenarios. The music and performance programme will take place in the evenings in various locations. Where and what exactly? More info will follow soon so keep an eye on our website and socials.

We will announce the festival programme and start ticket sales in early February.

Theme

During STRP Festival 2020 we imagine a future in which humans are no longer a dominating factor for life on Earth. We – humans – have a tendency to place ourselves in the centre of the universe and to behave as superior to nature, plant, animal and thing. But what if we were no longer at the top of the pyramid? How would we then realign with nature, technology, objects and intelligent systems? And what does all this mean for our world here, now, today?

Within the Scenario programme, STRP takes on a critical optimistic attitude and enters into dialogue with speakers and audience alike. Together we will think, speculate and talk about the place of humans and the role of technology, whereby art stimulates our imagination.
