D.A.T.E. 2.0 : Join in on the fun
D.A.T.E 2.0 – Join a four day creative innovation and city exploration “bootcamp” in Antwerp
Looking for a D.A.T.E.?
In March 2016 This is Antwerp will host a four day bootcamp in our Belgian port city. Discover Antwerp Through Experience (D.A.T.E.) will investigate how creative entrepreneurs shape the city and the city shapes them. This is Antwerp is looking for 12 participants to discover the city, its creative scene and meet their local counterparts. This invitation is extended to practitioners of all disciplines including fashion, food, music, art, illustration, graphic design, copywriting, programming, woodworking, or even dance.
Participants will be taken on tours of the city, engage in creative workshops and encouraged to immerse themselves in local culture. Each day will be packed with atelier visits, bike tours and excursions to new architecture and businesses – with plenty of time factored in for roaming at will and arranging your own itinerary. At night a group of locals will join the group to give short presentations about their work, followed by dinner. The week will conclude with the D.A.T.E. conference, an event that will see keynote speakers and participants discuss what they have seen and found offering different cultural perspectives on creativity and entrepreneurship (and, of course, consolidate friendships and possible collaborations).
This will be the second D.A.T.E. event. November 2014 saw 12 guests from Tokyo, New York, Barcelona, Madrid, Copenhagen, Stockholm, London, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Tel Aviv visit the city. The programme included workshops on silkscreen printing, 3d printing and designing with leather.
D.A.T.E. 2.0 will run from the 13-21 March 2016, with costs of travel, accommodation and events covered by the organisers.
