CD PROJEKT RED today unveiled the programme for the upcoming Promised Land Art Festival — set to take place from August 31st to September 3rd in the EC1 building complex in Łódź. The programme is set to grow as more speakers are announced to join the festival.
This year marks the first iteration of Promised Land Art Festival since 2019, and promises to be an exciting event geared towards artists and creatives across the video game, film, music and entertainment industries. This year’s programme features numerous highlights, including lectures where professionals from the fields of VFX, 3D, modeling, illustration, animation, and more, will share their knowledge. Attendees will also be able to take part in workshops throughout the event, gaining first-hand inspiration from recognized experts such as Tina Nawrocki, Jordu Schell, Anna Krzemień, Albert Szostkiewicz, Kamil Hepner, and Adam Goldstein. The programme also features live sculpting and drawing sessions.
The current programme is available to view here, and will be regularly updated with new lectures, sessions, and workshops as more speakers are announced for the event.
With Polsat Games as a media partner of the event, numerous official technology partners for Promised Land have also already been revealed, including Autodesk, IT Media, OSHEE, PCC Polska, Alterpose, Warsaw Ink, and Wacom — with more yet to be announced.
Created in collaboration between CD PROJEKT RED — developers of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher series of video games — the city of Łódź, Poland, and EC1 Łódź – The City of Culture, Promised Land is a place for the exchange of knowledge and experience, for networking, and crossing the divide between the digital and the traditional arts. Following the main Promised Land festival, the additional event, Open Day, will take place on September 4th, and is directed at budding artists and creative industry enthusiasts. Open Day will host additional lectures and offer the chance for portfolio consultations with industry experts.

Anyone wishing to attend the event can purchase tickets — and find out more information about both the main festival and Open Day — on the official Promised Land website, Twitter and Instagram pages.
