***DURING BOTH DAYS***

Guerilla Kitchen Amsterdam will take out people to “reclaim food waste” i.e. food, scouting and picking up from various locations around town, talks on how to set this sort of project up yourself. And cook it and eat it, of course!

Crafts & Arts

Pimp your backpack, learn to crochet handy things for the road, use a typewriter to make a (travel) fanzine or write a letter to someone, learn how to use a sewing machine and sow a patch on the spot… Yarnbombing , DIY Workshop Amsterdam and Typewriter Society will help.
The talented Julia Kiryanova will sketch portraits of all you beautiful people.
Spaces for more stands available.
Other
  • Free/Swap corner: leave what you don’t need and take what you might.
  • Book and fanzine stand from travellers.
  • A Human Library: in the form of a noticeboard and guestbook. We will map out where in the world the cool spots are, and connect with the good people there.

We are still looking for a few more people to participate as a Speaker, or Coordinator. Please do not hesitate to email programnomadsamsterdam@gmail.com
