Het festival dat steden beter maakt.
20-24 June 2018
WeMakeThe.City is a festival that makes cities better. For five days in a row, we will tackle urgent everyday challenges in the urban environment, together with audience and experts, spread across different locations in the Amsterdam metropolitan area. With lectures, film screenings, expositions, performances, urban expeditions, games, workshops, expert meetings, conversations, labs, maker spaces, and an attractive and active weekend programme for a large and wide audience. For Amsterdam, the metropolitan area, European cities and the rest of the world.
25 Jun The first edition of WeMakeThe.City is a fact. The 5-day festival included numerous programmes and activities about making the Amsterdam metropolitan region better: fairer, more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive. Read this brief journal of the festivities.
25 Jun On Thursday the 21st of June, the exciting conference Next Generation Cities took place. During the conference the positive and negative effects of technology were debated. How do we make sure that technology makes cities better?
24 Jun Over the past few days, an amazing number of people wandered the city to visit conferences, sessions, area meetups, and expositions. Inspiring keynote speakers sharpened our thinking and new alliances were forged between people that normally wouldn't meet each other - all for the sake of a positive effect on the Amsterdam Metropolitan Region.
Thousands of questions.
Some people might call these questions bottlenecks. But we would rather speak of opportunities.
