Welcome to the JAMvention!

The warmest, most colorful and budget-friendly face-and bodypaint event in Europe since 2008

Dear JAMvention participants,

We were so ready!!!!! Highly invested in better lighting and other "upgrades".But unfortunately, a negative advice has caused us to postpone the 12th edition of the JAMvention.

Yeah, we call it POSTPONE.Because ALL teachers who had promised for the 2020 edition have indicated to be there in 2021. So we're postponing it for a year!

The instructors for 2021 are:

  • Silke Kirchhoff
  • Ursela Otsing
  • Mel Broom
  • Ilse Kusters
  • Linnea Önnerby Novak
  • Sarina Manaert

As icing on the cake; we can add Karen Huwen in this row

You already bought a ticket, and now what?

There are two options:

  • You get the whole amount back.
  • You move your seat to next year: 15-17 October 2021.

For both options, please contact Willy: Willy@facepaintinprogress.eu.

We will miss you very much and we would love to see you back in 2021.

Willy, Jacklyn,  Richard, Jurrien and Roy en all FIP volunteers.

See you all at the JAMvention of October 15th-17th


All participants have the opportunity to attend an array of informative and fun workshops hosted by top artists from around the world. JAMvention’s fabulous hospitality, informal, friendly atmosphere, not to mention the delicious home cooked meals, all for the budget-friendly price of €280,- (bed, food, drinks and workshops inclusive) are what makes it one of the very best face and body painting events around. There are a limited number of spaces available, so if you want to be certain of securing your place, book your ticket as soon as possible!

Facepaint In Progress, or FIP for short, was founded in 2008 to promote professional face and body painting. Organizing and hosting the JAMvention, as well as providing and overseeing the face and body painting at Elfia Arcen and Haarzuilens, all serve to implement this.

We are looking forward to welcoming all of our regular visitors back as well as the increasing number of new attendees, from beginner to advanced professional painters.

A warm welcome awaits you all at the next edition of the JAMvention. THE warmest, most colorful and budget-friendly, face and body paint event in Europe!!!
