Spacemakers is a STRP Education programme that challenges young people to think and to rise above their expectations. These youngsters work together in Eindhoven with an artist to create an artistic project. During STRP Festival 2023, the projects of the past two Spacemakers editions will be presented.
Spacemakers x Iris van der Meule: What a time to be Alive.
Together with digital artist and virtual reality director Iris van der Meule, 10 youngsters from Fontys Hogescholen Tilburg en Eindhoven, De Rooi Pannen Tilburg, Summa College Eindhoven, TU/e, Grafisch Lyceum Utrecht and SintLucas Eindhoven are working on a project around the theme 'The Art of Listening'. Central to their approach is climate doom: the powerless feeling that many young people experience about the climate and their future. The VR experience "What a time to be Alive" guides you through some of the feelings that come with experiencing climate doom. Guilt, hopelessness, avoidance and, perhaps most importantly, that little spark of hope that is still there. What causes climate doom? How bad is the situation, and are we really doomed? How can individuals help the climate? With these research questions, the youngsters will work with Iris towards a final presentation from 10 to 12 February 2023. During STRP Festival 2023, the project will be presented again to the festival audience.
Spacemakers x HyperCulture: Herbarium
Imagine a future where every physical space is connected to the digital world. Augmented reality has become part of our everyday lives: a digital shell over buildings, public spaces, and even in our own homes. Virtual reality and reality have completely merged. A prospect that doesn't seem so crazy with the rise of VR, Metaverse, CGI influencers, deepfake and NFT museums, among others! Spacemakers x HyperCulture see themselves as explorers in this speculative future. Who are we in this world? Are we coexisting, or are we rebelling? In June 2022, 9 youngsters from SintLucas Eindhoven en Boxtel, Summa College Eindhoven, TU/e, Fontys Hogescholen Eindhoven and Avans Hogeschool Breda, and artist duo HyperCulture, already presented their works in a joint exhibition at De Heuvel. During STRP Festival 2023, some of the works will be on show again.
