Meet, Learn, Connect

Networking Day Logo
21 January 2022

The Different Perspectives Networking Day stimulates cross-fertilisation between different sectors and is a meeting place for individuals and studios with professional experience in making and developing video games, with a passion for society, culture and/or art on the one hand and local professional artists, in the broad sense of the term, independent of discipline, who want to embrace the interactivity of game technology in order to reshape the social themes and stories that drive them.

On this networking day, we present 3 international speakers with relevant experience in the overlapping field of culture, arts, games and an info session on relevant support initiatives.

There will also be a speed-pitch round, a networking lunch, and participants will have access to the Relive exhibition.

VAF Panel: Artistic games in Flanders

Featuring Hannes Devillé, Thomas Devillé (Devillé Arcade), Christopher Morrison (The Werewolf Experience), Jeroen Janssens (Happy Volcano), Frank and Robbert (Robbert&Frank)
Moderated by Christophe De bont (Journalist and Comission member VAF/Gamefonds)

One of the categories that VAF supports are artistic games, sometimes also called arthouse games. These are games that can (but not necessarily) take the form of an installation and are often short, experimental and personal in nature. In this panel, you will learn from the experiences of experts who have received support from VAF to realize their artistic game productions.
