Klimaatfestival Antwerpen (Climate Festival Antwerp) is organised by Troebel, a philosophical platform that creates clarity in a troubled world. By taking a cultural-philosophical look at climate change, the festival highlights various aspects of the problems and challenges related to climate change. By developing the graphic and digital communication for the festival, we joined this project.
The central theme of the first edition of the festival was “imagination”, inspired by philosopher and political thinker Hannah Arendt. Arendt valued imagination in judgement and political action. By reflecting climate issues through artistic creations, imagination could be stimulated. This imagination is, according to the organizers, crucial to realize a greener future. More imagination means more perspectives!
Each event has its own page on the website with an animation at the top that functions as an illustration of the content of the event. We developed a module for CMS to generate the collages. In CMS, you can upload all the different elements for the collage per activity, give them a position, size and speed. This will be followed by the creation of an animated collage.
