On and Off the Grid event by Hackers & Designers -

Beginning as a cross-disciplinary meet-up community in Amsterdam, H&D has established a far reaching global network that has grown out of both workshops, talks and lectures abroad by bringing international talent to the Netherlands via the Hackers & Designers Summer Academy (HDSA), exhibitions and public programs.

Hackers & Designers is unique due to its hands-on and critical approach to making (opening up technology and appropriating it), the ability and intention to bring di erent disciplines together, the creation of a common language that is informed by critical cross-disciplinary discourse, and its focus on self-initiated working and learning structures.

They hosted the Get Prepped: On and Off the Grid event of 2017 at Mediamatic.
