Trust in Play – European School of Urban Game Design > Open call (Greece)

Trust in Play supports emerging practitioners in forming a career out of making urban games and playful urban experiences. Benefits include enhancing your professional capacity (artistic and business skills) and acquiring the tools necessary to start working sustainably.

You will be part of an international community of urban game designers, artists, academics and cultural organisations with a basic goal to support your work and improve your financial sustainability. The school organisers actively involve experts with considerable experience in state of the art urban play projects, community-based artistic games and innovative playful experiences.

What the organisers are looking for:

Are you a person who has the ambition to play a leading role in the design of urban playful experiences in the near future? The organisers are looking for independent artists or game designers, but also creatives from a broader practice like, architects, urban designer and social innovators. Are you a recent graduate or emerging professional with experience in one of these fields, and do you want to further develop your skills to work in interdisciplinary (design) teams developing urban game design projects? If yes, you will be the perfect person the Trust in Play team is looking for. 

As a selected trainee you will receive

  • a grant to support travel and daily allowance for the International Training Week in Athens in October

  • ongoing training and support from local and international mentors, organized through your branch

  • the opportunity to be part of an active community of creative practitioners

  • production budget for projects realized in teams during the second half of the traineeship in 2020 (around 3500€ per project)

The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Program of the European Union.

Deadline: 31 May 2019
