The size of a whale, vagina art, a possible third Industrial Revolution, and inspiration for a Vegan Christmas dinner. This and more at the last Ignite Amsterdam of the year. Dinner comes courtesy of four home cooks, and besides a scrumptious cake, you can choose from wonton noodles, tomato soup or Rendang. The first speaker kicks off at 20:30. Join us in your warmest winter coat. Buy your tickets online to save a few euros.
Moving from Canada to the Netherlands, you could say it was only natural for Kyle's work to start focusing on the landscape. In the absence of mountains and waterfalls, he created his own, assembling or staging nature, exploring his own relationship to it.
Blend into nature, start your own micro bio-industry and cultivate magic mushrooms in our self build mobile Cleanlab. During this workshop, we will grow our own psilocybe cubensis. This mushroom contains the hallucinating substance psilocybin. Discover more about the mysterious world of mycelium and learn how to grow mushrooms.
The psilocybe cubensis is a mushroom that is relatively easy to grow. During this workshop, we will make a substrate on which we can grow these mushrooms. This substrate will be infected with spores in our Cleanlab. The Cleanlab is a sterile space, that prevents other spores and bacteria to contaminate the substrate. Participants can take the infected substrate home, where it will turn into mycelium and eventually in mushrooms , after 2 or 4 weeks. Participants receive a handout that about what to with the substrate at home.

Learn how you can grow Grey Oyster mushrooms using standard kitchen equipment
In this workshop we've learned how to make our own straw-based substrate. We've infected this straw with oyster mushroom spawn in our cleanroom. After this workshop you have enough knowledge to repeat this procedure at home. Of course everyone took their freshly made oyster mushroom substrate bag home after the workshop.
We start with sterilising the straw. By cooking the straw in a pressure cooker you instantly get rid off the existing mold and fungus spores that are often naturally present in the straw. We cook the straw for half an hour and then we let it cool down till it's approximately 25 degrees celsius. Then we start with the grafting process by mixing in the spores with our hand. After that we grab a filter bag, put the mixture in and seal the bag. When you come home, make sure to put the bag in a dark and warm place (28 degrees celsius) and wait a couple of weeks until the straw is fully colonised by the mycelium. Instructions on ...
Fungal economics and micro-organisms in design
In an evening filled with talks, music and animation, we will explore how we can use fungi in order to attain a more bio-based economy. This evening two experts will tickle your imagination about fungal economics and using micro-organisms in design.
