The first edition of the art & technology festival STRP was a huge success on all accounts. During 3 days about 10,000 visitors let themselves be awed by an international program of over 100 acts in the areas of Robotics, Interactive Art, Music and Visuals. The (inter)national press also found their way to the monumental Klokgebouw(building) at Strijp-S in large numbers.
The mix of diverse disciplines turned out to be a hit. In the daytime the diverse crowd was amazed by the extensive exhibition and there was a lot of interest in the lectures, movies and Live Cinema performances. The music program created 2 parties that went on deep into the night.
The plans for the 2007 edition are taking shape more and more and we are determined to present an even more exciting program with the best acts from the world of art & technology from Friday May 11 till Sunday May 13.

STRP art & technology festival :
CALL FOR PROJECTS - extended Deadline 10 JULY
The first edition of the STRP festival will take place in Eindhoven(Netherlands) between the 18th and 20th of November 2005.
Its focus is on the commonalities between art, popular culture and technology. As part of the festival there will be performances, exhibits and presentations in a historical space. STRP will take place on the 'holy' ground of the forbidden city of Philips, where in the 20th century numerous technological innovations were made.
A place where Einstein worked at one point and where one of the most ambitious
amalgamations of the arts and technology took place: "Poeme Electronique," a collaboration between the architect LeCorbusier with architect/composer Iannis Xenakis, artist Jean Petit, composer Edgard Varese and filmmaker Phillipe Agostini. Coincidence or not, Dick Raaijmakers also was closely involved in this project. STRP gets its
inspiration from this amalgamation of technology and art.
STRP is looking for projects/installations/proposals that fit under
one of the following themes:
1) Press "Start" : gaming, interactive installations and playful art
works, in which the public can take an active role in the experience
and realization of the work.
2) WE ARE THE ROBOTS : robots, robort art, installations.
