PechaKucha night

View LGBTQ meetups Save the date: Thursday, 27 Jun 2019 7:30

Hi all, ever heard of PechaKucha?

We’ll be going for the next PechaKucha night in Amsterdam. If you like an evening full of inspiration with radical ideas & stories from artists and technologists in Amsterdam, join us there on 27/06.

And this one is even more special – it’s rooftop edition 🙂 so probably will be sold out soon! Hurry up and secure your ticket here:

What is PechaKucha?
PechaKucha is a presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps — just about anything, really — in the 20×20 format. Since 2007, PechaKucha Nights in Amsterdam have become one of the city’s most prominent platforms for creative exchange.

For real enthusiasts, here longer version: 🙂

Hope to see you there on 27/06! After we can go grab a drink in a random nearby popular place!

The Groendomein currently has a restaurant, bakery, coffee roaster and shop in the farm. The foundation is set up as a care farm, which means that people with intellectual disabilities work together with professionals and volunteers.

I Can Make You Feel Good – Tyler Mitchell

View LGBTQ meetups Save the date: Sunday, 26 May 2019 1:00

Let’s visit the first solo-exhibition of this upcoming photographer and filmmaker.

In 2018, Mitchell wrote history with his photographs of Beyoncé gracing the cover of two different editions of American Vogue’s ‘September Issue’. Only 23 at the time, he became the first black photographer to make the cover in the 126-year existence of the prominent magazine. This along with many other accomplishments has made him one of the most closely watched up-and-coming talents in photography today.

If we like we can view some other exhibitions in FOAM too! There’s enough to see.


Time schedule (approx.):

13:00 hrs. We’ll meet in FOAM Café
13:30 hrs. We’ll start our visit to the exhibition(s).
15:00 hrs. Official endtime of event, but we can go for another exhibition in FOAM or a drink in the café if we like

If you bring your Museumkaart (Museumcard), you’ll have free entry to the museum.

If you don’t have a Museumkaart, you probably will have to buy a ticket (12,50 euro). Check the ticket information:

The Unorganized Thursday Drinks!

View LGBTQ meetups Save the date: Thursday, 11 Jul 2019 7:00

Desperate to start the weekend early? Want a casual way to meet new and old faces? We hear you.

Join us for after-work (or after-school, or after-whatever) merriment. This time we’ll be at (bar to be announced – read below to help us find a place) and we’ll try a different bar every month.

So easiest thing ever, with no elaborate plans, activities or schedules – Just come over, have some drinks, and a laid back chat with people.

We’ll be there at least from 7:00 to 9:30, but we’ll stay longer if the crowd stays longer! Come by early for more fun!

See you soon!

→ A couple of tips for us all
– Definitely don’t open a tab for the group, pay for all drinks and food immediately 😉
– We’re there to meet people, so be friendly, walk around, and mingle! Don’t stay only with the people you came with (unless you’re on a date, of course)!

→ So? Do you know any good places to have our meetup? It would be a great help if you could post any suggestions, what we are looking for is a place that:
– Has space indoors (because it’s cold outside!)
– Has an open space where people can mingle and walk around (instead of sitting down)
– Is reasonably close from Amsterdam city center (reachable by bike)
– Has reasonable prices and a relaxed, cozy bar vibe

Any recommendations?
