Xavier Girard

Through his big glasses, Xavier is always watching for alternative artistic scenes, innovating popular cultures and smart projects.

As a digital project leader and a curator, he used to associating cultural purpose, entertainement and workshops to create a meeting point between artists, practices and audience.

He organised several festival about video games and physical games culture for french children and their families : Les Pixels from 2006 to 2010, the Retro No Future Games Festival in 2013 or the Festival Les Monstres, in 2016.

Due to the french « wellfare state », he has recently created several artistic projects. In 2015, with Pierre Corbinais the OUJEVIPO traveling exhibition which supports alternative gaming for children was born. The same year, as an entertainer, he created the “workshopshow” Reforme Graphique with Yassine and Yann Van Der Cruyssen.

Today, he perceives himself as a physical game designer, working on space-time, keeping his feet firmly on the ground, in front of the computer screen.
