ECO Coin Talk at ADE Green

Music festivals are all about having fun, and the opportunities to entertain people are endless. And that’s what people expect: to be surprised, entertained and to have a magical experience. But what if you can give your audience a good time and also engage them in creating a better world? This year Amsterdam Dance Events (ADE) green program will explore exactly how sustainable thinking and festivals come together. As part of this exploration, project lead of the ECO coin Lewis Just will speak on a panel exploring how the ECO coin ran its first living labs at DGTL and Welcome to the Village festival. Join us on the 18th October at 11.15am at the DeLaMar Theatre, Amsterdam.

More information and tickets to the panel can be found here.

The Pyramid of Technology at Todays Art

Every human being has to cope with technological change, yet few of us are aware of how new technologies are introduced, accepted and discarded in our society. The Pyramid of Technology visualizes how technology becomes nature in seven steps. It describes the seven levels at which technology may function in our life. At the bottom of the pyramid we find technologies that only exist as an idea or image (such as the time machine). At the top we find technologies that have become part of our human nature (such as clothing and cooking). NNN designer Hendrik-Jan Grievink will take participants through a workshop using the Pyramid of Technology toolkit to investigate speculative senses and extensions of the senses. Secure your spot and email to workshop@todaysart.nl with the workshop name in the subject line. See you there!
