- NDSM-plein 127
This was the kick-off of the Summer Academy!! We met at 9:30 at NDSM studio 127 for an introduction. We started the day by a challenging interaction where we all had to greet each other with a personal crypto key in the form of a handshake.
We visited and had lunch at Mediamatic an alternative art space in Amsterdam exploring the possibilities and challenges that new technology offers art, design, nature and society.
After a guided tour at Waag society an inspiring place in Amsterdam at the intersection of science, technology and the arts. Their work focuses on emergent technologies as instruments of social change, and is guided by the values of fairness, openness and inclusivity, we went back to NDSM for a welcoming dinner cooked by the amazing Tara Steemers who cooked us lunch for the whole Summer Academy!
