We start the workshop with an introduction into the history, usage and alchemy of bioiesel. After a demonstration by the trainer, you will have a go at the process yourself. After just a few hours you will have made your own bottle of biodiesel, ready to take home and use! Click here for a Youtube video from the first workshop.
Mediamatic and alternative production
At Mediamatic we are experimenting with sustainable technologies. We are growing mushrooms and our own fish and vegetables in a vertical aquaponics farm, and teaching other people how to do so, too. Our produce is prepared in the Diesel Kantine, which runs on local energy, and provides food for the local community. A small-scale, sustainable canteen.
The workshop takes place at Mediamatic Fabriek, Oostenburgereiland Amsterdam on October 25, from 19.00 to 22.00. Workshops will be held every Thursday evening at this time. Get your ticket(s) here. You can either pay with money (€ 45,-) or exchange the workshop for three days of volunteer work at our exhibition space. In that case, 'buy' the €0,- volunteer-ticket. Please e-mail Deborah Meibergen if you have any questions. The workshop language is English.
