This Is Antwerp invited 12 internationals to Discover Antwerp Through Experience, in short to go on a D.A.T.E. with Antwerp from the 3rd until the 8th of November. We’ll show them the best hidden secrets, jaunt the hottest places, survive workshops together, enjoy the finest meals and much more. But most important they will meet that one important thing that fuels Antwerp to be the dynamic city that it is today: creative people.
This is how D.A.T.E. rolls
By the look of our guests this morning we immediately knew: they got acquainted with the infamous Antwerp nightlife. Maybe it had something to with the fact we were all invited to the awesome Initials LA party at café Storm. Legendary! They had the whole day off to relax and enjoy Antwerp. We only met for lunch and a tour in co-working space Coffeelabs and Idealabs. Our international guests loved the food as much as they did the concept.
Unfortunately, like all good things, our D.A.T.E. with 12 incredible international creatives is coming to an end. But we’re not letting them go without a big bang.
We asked Maeltijd to work her magic for us. Foodie heaven is never far away when she’s around. She even told us all her appetizers would be based on Antwerp local products.
Belgium-Antwerp is just another synonym for beer. So we couldn’t but having a beer tasting tonight. (that’s right, we said taste)
This week we visited a ton of Antwerp creatives. Tonight just wouldn’t be complete without their presence. They brought some of their products to decorate the room.
We asked DAMN to show us some more possibilities of 3D Design & printing on the spot.
To make the night complete we asked the awesome Antwerp upcoming talents Jane Spleen to do what they do best: rock the joint. The dj’s from What It Is will for sure make us all look like ADHD-patients when they start to caress the turntables.
