Waag is open

Duration: -

Every Thursday everyone is welcome to unravel technology together with us. On the open Thursday, there is room to think critically about advancing technologies, data, ownership and the feasibility of our world.

Visit the Fablab Amsterdam or join during the various evening program. Our Fablab is free of charge between 16.00 and 20.00. Come and discover what you can make: from 3D prints to air quality sensors, from digital crafts to beautiful end products. Fablab Amsterdam is a place for unbridled creativity, craft and digital literacy.

Subsequently, a diverse program will take place in the Waag on Thursday evening.

During workshops we take a look under the hood to investigate how technologies work. In addition, we invite thinkers to address ethical issues, experiment with new applications or investigate future developments. We prefer to do this with a union of companions: citizens, policy makers, artists, makers, thinkers and entrepreneurs. Everyone is welcome.

Check our calendar for the upcoming events. Thursday evening programming is made up of the following series:

Amsterdam Smart Citizens Lab
The programme series of the Smart Citizens Lab consists of workshops, presentations and design sessions aimed at improving and mapping the living environment. In what world do we want to live and what role does technology play in this? We explore solutions that we can directly influence ourselves. Together we develop do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) solutions and creative interventions. There is room to experiment and learn, to explore together what we want and how we can achieve it.

Critical Making
In this workshop series we always invite a maker, thinker, inventor, designer or artist whose work is central. We engage in conversation and get to work in the Fablab ourselves.

Do worry, be happy
In the DO worry, be happy series, we enter into dialogue with experts from the field of technology, innovation and ethics about new developments. Do we have to worry and how do we keep control? DO worry, but be happy.

Manifesting Futures
Manifesting Futures is a series of avant-garde club nights full of critical sounds, art and technology. In each edition we discover in an experimental future scenario of an artist, critical thinker or musicians.
