Pop Up Cinema x Illustrada Festival 2024

From June 15 to 23, an exhibition for the Illustrada Festival will pop up in the city center of Tilburg, the Heyhoef shopping center, and Wagnerplein with large-scale illustrations made by local, national, and international artists. But who creates these illustrations, and how does this work come about?

On Wednesday evening, June 19, we will take you into the wonderful world of illustration and animation at NS16 with a special Illustrada side program. We will chat with the Breda-based creator Cheyenne Goudswaard and the Tilburg based illustrator Jill Peeters.

Dit evening is organized in collaboration with Playgrounds en Wobby Club.

This will be an english language event. The evening and artist talks will be hosted by Charlie Jermyn.

Charlie Jermyn is a writer from Dublin living in Amsterdam. He writes essays and prose on travel, landscapes, music, and art. His work has been published by Het Hem, Bog Bodies Press, Onomatopee, and The Irish Times. He is the host of the radio series 'More Poetry is Needed' on Stranded FM Utrecht. 

Cheyenne Goudswaard

Cheyenne Goudswaard is a Dutch illustrator and animation filmmaker. Her focus is drawn to the dirt in the corner and the neighbour that no one wants – the unnoticed and misunderstood. She wants to peek beyond the front door to discover what is hidden in the backyard. Her fascination with human behaviour, how we shape our lives and how we relate to the world is expressed into soft, intimate and relatable illustrations and animations. She graduated with a Master degree in Animation from MIVC St. Joost School of Art and Design in 2023.

That same year, she won the Animation Talent Award, sponsored by the Keep an Eye Foundation. Her short film ‘Ik Ben Hier’ (I Am Here) is being screened at film festivals internationally. She won the Best Animated Film Award at Sehsüchte Film Festival with I Am Here. In 2024, Cheyenne was selected for Playgrounds Next Talent Program to further develop her future projects.

Jill Peeters

Jill Peeters is based in Tilburg and works as a background and visdev artist for international studios like Submarine, Il Luster and The Film Kitchen.

She is really into building fantastical worlds and bringing them to life with color and composition. Her work is inspired by the experiences and emotional bonds she shares with people in her life. She worked on feature animation films like Benjamin Bat and Fox and Hare Save the Forest.
