CHARACTER LAB 2022
ATTENDEE STAGE & OPEN CHARACTER MARKET

Pictoplasma 2022 will keep all attendees busy from Wednesday afternoon to Sunday evening, but the best part of a conference are the connections we make, right?

And that’s why: apart from numerous chances to network, such as workshops, speed pitching, portfolio reviews, and industry Meet ‘n Greets, THIS YEAR’S CHARACTER LAB INVITES THE ATTENDEES THEMSELVES TO TAKE THE STAGE,  shape this year’s programme and show off their work, explain their latest project or meet and mingle with other attendees.

Additionally, as a premiere, attendees are invited to join us on Sunday the 18th, for a big, lively OPEN AIR CHARACTER MARKET on the sunny front lawn of Silent Green, where they can offer their zines, art collectables, toys, apparel, buttons, prints, drawings, sculptures and other character related goodies.

More info on “how, what, when” sent out to all attendees after registration via Email.

BERLIN VENUE 2022

Pictoplasma Berlin takes place at the extensive premises of a former crematorium, the Silent Green, a beautiful, vibrant cultural venue that has already hosted several memorable Pictoplasma events. The special summer edition will concentrate all activities at one lively venue, with conference talks, panels, animation screenings, workshops and exhibitions happening both inside and Open Air — all taking into account the governing rules of hygiene and social distance, while delivering tons of infectious character inspiration.
