Leuven MindGate dreams of a brand new crossover city festival. An ambitious, interdisciplinary conference at the thrilling intersection of health, high-tech and creativity. Shaved Monkey stands at the cradle of this festival. How do we represent this brand new concept? How do we make sure this festival comes to life in the city?

The audiovisual look and feel becomes an essential part of the festival's distinctive identity. Colliding worlds and the symbioses of ideas are expressed in sound and vision. People smell colors and taste music. They discover the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and a crossover way of working. Vibrating locally, resonating internationally.

1+1=3

Silver garlands sparkle in the sunlight. Streets are sizzling with inspiration. Squares are bursting with enthusiasm. The city is filled with thinkers, visionaries, students, designers, artists, architects, engineers and politicians. The air is charged with excitement as brand new ideas see the light of day.

What happens if a doctor collaborates with a fashion designer? Why do we need blockchain in urban planning? How can technology create a safe environment to talk about mental health? What can robots teach us about what it means to be human? Innovation and disruption start where different disciplines meet. Everybody gets more than they what they came for.

Fertile co-creation

Pieter Goiris is appointed curator. Onkruid, known from Horst Arts & Music, is in charge of the production and coordination. Shaved Monkey is designer and audiovisual partner before, during and after the festival. Starting from the artwork by Uncompressed, and& festival gets a well defined character, a very own personality. Wieni and Lotte Martens contribute to the implementation.

Fantastic reviews and excited visitors agree: the festival is a triumph! The result of a fertile cooperation between Leuven MindGate and Shaved Monkey. Get ready for the 2020 edition!
