Agenda

Waag Open is our weekly public programme. Within this programme, we highlight current themes, organise a variety of workshops, and present collaborations between scientists, designers and artists. Every Thursday evening, Waag opens its (digital) doors so everyone can participate. We also offer an open stage for partners and other interested parties to make proposals for additional programming.
