Us by Night
Parkloods Park Spoor Noord, Antwerpen
22 – 24 November 2018
Launched as OFFF by Night in 2016, this distinctively different design festival in Antwerp has been operating under the name Us by Night since last year. Its format of conference, theme park, and night market continues this year and, for three days in November, you can join the action every day from 4 pm.
The festival aims to combine creative input with the merits of nightlife. On three stages – the Main Stage, the Living Room and the Tutorial Stage – speakers will be talking about their experiences, revealing a few tricks of their trade, and passing on their knowledge in workshops. In between, visitors can spend time at the flea market, playing table tennis and arcade games or enjoying culinary delights. For those who wish to have a lasting memory of the festival, there is even the opportunity to get a tattoo.
The usual “suspects” are included in the line-up of speakers, Erik Kessels, David Carson and Mirko Borsche, and Jim Stoten, Curt Enderle and Studio Moniker are also taking part in the event. The 70-plus speakers as well as the artists involved in the festival with installations and live performances, can be viewed here. Admission is from 4 pm every day and the first keynote lectures begin at 5 pm.
