STRP festival 2022 edition marked the beginning of a new era for STRP, exploring the relationship between art, technology, and major societal issues with a broad programme, moving between various locations of Eindhoven. In this way, the festival invites a broader public to reflect on the world we live in. How can we use other philosophies and new technologies to rethink humanity’s relationship with nature? How can we build not a destructive but a constructive world? And how can technological progress bring connection instead of abandonment?

Jip Bierkens is Head of Marketing & Communication for this Eindhoven-based organisation. With various events throughout the year and an annual festival in the spring, STRP aims to start a dialogue about speculative future scenarios.

This edition is made possible by Caravan Cultura.
