STRP tip: Scenarios

Listen up! If you've read our beginner's guide, you know that the STRP Scenarios are a regular festival feature. During these talks and lectures, you will dive deeper into STRP's current theme with the help of co-creators. This year's theme is 'The Art of Listening.' Want to see, uh, hear how listening can be elevated to art? For a tenner per session, you can visit a STRP scenario.


STRP Stage at Microstad. Professor Doctor Dorgelolaan 2, Eindhoven. 

Need a ticket? 

For the STRP scenarios, you need one ticket per scenario. You can score 'em here. Do you already have a STRP-expot ticket? This allows you to attend the final presentation without an extra ticket.

How to get there?

Microstad is a five-minute walk from Eindhoven Central Station. No need for a bike or public transport!

Why would you want to go here?

Do you want to know more about the theme or love listening to others? During the STRP scenarios, you will learn even more about the art of listening in combination with new technologies, art, and design. It is also the perfect opportunity to put your new knowledge into practice. Although we can recommend them all, visiting just one is also okay. Good to know: English is the leading language during all scenarios. 


Our recommendations:

  • STRP scenario #20: The Sound of Many Tomorrows
    The world is on fire, or at least it feels that way sometimes. So it's time for sharp visions and radical transitions. We are the writers of our own story; we are in control. To take control, we don't have to reinvent the wheel; we just need to listen to the planet. Listen to what the future might sound like during The Sound of Many Tomorrows. 

  • STRP Scenario #21: Decentralized Collaborative Futures
    With big tech organizations like Google and Meta at the helm, the Internet has become an integral part of our lives. For as long as it lasts. With Web3 looming, consisting of blockchain technologies, crypto, and tokens,, it's time to prepare for a new era. One where the user has control over data, creation, culture, design, and use. What will this future bring?? Listen to the speakers' ideas in Decentralized Collaborative Futures. 

  • STRP Scenario #22: Silence: (im)possible absences
    Why is silence associated with calm, tranquility, peace, order, and discipline? And why is noise associated with the exact opposite? During this scenario, the speakers and a live silence sound break will take you into the absence of sound. 

  • Closing keynote: The Art of Listening
    Every year STRP Festival closes with a presentation. Of course, we don't want to withhold this one from you. During this keynote, philosopher and essayist Miriam Rasch will discuss what it actually means to listen to each other. Sounds like a great way to end things if you'd ask us.
