Prototype is a brand new festival of Play and Interaction which brings together some of the most playful designers in the world, to engage, excite, inspire, create and energise the city by providing a new platform for innovative social interaction and cross disciplinary play.
The festival will open with a series of talks from some of the most exciting designers and game makers from Ireland and beyond.
Talk 1: Permission to Play
What does it take to make an entire city be more playful? What does play on a massive scale look like and what does it take to make it?
Talk 2: Cross Disciplinary Play
Focussing on projects that defy categorisation, we will hear from boundary shifting artists and designers about their playful work and what the notion of prototyping has brought to their practice.
Talk 3: Theatre and Games
As theatre artists increasingly design games and game designers turn to performance to enhance their work, what are the benefits and disadvantages to mixing game and theatre?
Click for instant happiness.

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?
