Do It Yourself! NIGHT
Wake up your inner superhero
No money for an expensive gym? Use the city as your personal fitness studio instead. No colours in your town? Paint it yourself. No kindergarten in your street? Open an alternative kindergarten with your friends! The issue at stake is not how we will survive financially, but how we are going to change the world. We've invited international artists, activists and hackers. In a series of workshops they will provide you with a practical toolbox and strategies to start a playful revolution in your local environment and to get involved with your community. Become the change you would like to see!
Trust is the new currency Since the world financial system collapsed – let’s leave money out of the game. Barter your possessions to get what you need – exchange your time and skills for other goods, space and services without using money. Do It Yourself! NIGHT is the first barter-only event in Amsterdam. It means that you can't buy a ticket but you can decide what you want to exchange in order to participate in this event, like for instant baking pancakes for our speakers or learning them Dutch in exchange for participating in their workshop.
Do It Yourself! NIGHT is an experiment by Fringe FUEL, Street Wisdom University and W139 – alternative space for contemporary art in the centre of Amsterdam.
Starts 19:30 at W139
