As a maker, you are not only focused on your craft; you are also involved in communication, marketing, sales, finance, and building a network. Additionally, you always want to innovate and improve. It can be quite overwhelming to find your way in all of this. That’s why we organise this meetup: a moment to come together with a small group of makers (7-10 people) and discuss the struggles you face as a maker in the creative field. Bring a (creative) issue to the meetup, and we will address your question using an intervision model. This is a conversational technique for collaboratively coming up with structured solutions to a problem. It can also be seen as a joint brainstorming session where we exchange tips. Every type of maker is welcome!

The meetup is from 19:00 – 21:00 at New Metropolis Metropolis Nieuw-West (Burgemeester Rendorpstraat 1, 1064 LH, Amsterdam).

About this initiative

This small-scale makers meetup originated from the group ‘Nieuw Makers Nieuw-West’. Over the past year, makers from the district Amsterdam Nieuw-West have been coming together at different cultural locations to share experiences, challenges, and plans. Currently, more than 170 makers are part of this ever-growing network. The meetings take place every first Tuesday evening of the month. Would you like to be a part of this network? Then send an email to Peter Both, Project Leader of Art & Culture at the Nieuw-West district: [email protected].
