Waag Society: 10 Years

By jo


Waag Bazaar

On the 21st of June it will be 10 years ago that Waag Society opened the doors of the Waag building that had been vacant for several years. A lot has happened since then. Waag Society evolved into an international acknowledged institution where technology is connected to social and cultural issues.

To celebrate our 10th anniversary there will be a Waag Bazaar on the 21st of June with music, performances, installations, debates, art, and a number of our projects. The program starts at 1.00 PM and ends with a debate at 6.00 PM.

The program in the restaurant contains the Storytelling table, a Lock-picker workshop by Toools, Robot Mobi, The Robot Vodka Bar, Neighborhood Cinema, The Animation Table, Simuze performances, the ScratchWorx console with VJ/DJ workshops and more.

On the first floor a real Waag museum will be open for that day with projects from the past and the present: storytelling activities, keyworx installation and connected experiments.

During the day several debates will take place in the Theatrum Anatomicum; topics range from the Nieuwmarkt neighborhood, Creative cities and the 'Ars Combinatoire'. All discussions will be in Dutch.

We invite you all..
