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.

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it?

In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited.
