About

Knutpunkt 

In 2022, Knutpunkt will be held 9th – 12th of September in Linköping, Sweden. During the conference, we will discuss, develop and co-create larp theory and design – as well as play, socialise and exchange ideas and experiences with people from all over the world.

Untagged

Knutpunkt usually has a tradition for a theme that creates a red thread for the given conference. This year’s theme will be “untagged”. 

We wish for this Knutpunkt to push the reset button. We want to be able to explore new and old areas and subjects, not having to fit them into a certain theme. We encourage you to participate in Knutpunkt,  contributing with whatever you find interesting, no matter what box it fits into.

What to do?

Knutpunkt is a conference where co-creation plays a central role. As a participant, you will spend most of the conference both contributing to the larp scene and learning from it – whether it is through participating in a discussion, hosting a workshop, playing a larp or talking about games throughout the whole night. Knutpunkt strives to offer a creative and inspiring atmosphere where both big and small ideas deserve to be exposed and get a chance to grow. We firmly believe that everyone has a story to tell and experiences to share and we would like to encourage all our participants to embrace this spirit of Knutpunkt.

The tradition

Knutpunkt is an annual conference held by four Nordic countries (SWE/DK/FIN/NO), shifting the hosting between them each year.

The first Knutpunkt was held in Norway 1997 and has since then functioned as a platform and meeting point for sharing ideas and experiences and creating new perspectives on larps and larp design. It has been a driving force in developing larping as a phenomenon, both professionally and for fun. Since then, it has expanded rapidly over the last couple of years, with participants joining from more than twenty countries all over the world, it has made the conference a natural focal point of larp theory and design.
