Windows to the World is a sign painting platform that organized events mainly in Eindhoven. We organized two festivals in the city centre, an expo at Kelderman en van Noort, a jam at Emoves Festival, a fundraiser for a local playground, online challenges and collaborations between poets and signpainters. More info of our last festival here.

Our first edition was held in December 2020 and now we are working on our second event starting September 5th 2021. We invite artists to paint on big windows in the city centre of Eindhoven. This year we also have a collaboration with poets and sign painters, and we will experiment with an artist making machines that can draw on windows.

Sign painting is the craft of painting lettered signs on signs, walls and windows.

Windows to the World is an initiative of MrVains and organized by Jasper van Es (PAPERJAM) and Ben Plummer (The Ben Plummer Sign co.)

It is financially supported and wouldn’t be possible without Binnenstad Investeringszone Eindhoven (BIZ) Cultuur Eindhoven and the Urban Coöperation EMOVES.

Special thanks to Gemeente Eindhoven, Eindhoven365 and Eindhoven247 for their support and cooperation and of course all the location partners! Thanks for the trust!
