Hidde Kamst was intern at Waag’s Smart Citizens Lab. During his internship he examined how technology can support more participative forms of politics and citizenship. Waag’s co-creation methods were a central part of his research.
Hidde is currently doing the master Philosophy of science, technology and society at the University of Twente. This choice arose from an interest in the influence of technology on people and on society. He hopes to bring theory into practice during his internship at Waag. Before this, Hidde finished a bachelor’s program in psychology at the University of Amsterdam and a minor at De Building Academie. He has worked as a peer educator at Diversion and helped to shape the education at De Bildung Academie.
