Ignite Amsterdam 26

12 presentations x 5 minutes

27 Mar 2013

Apps, artists and activism: we explored all corners of everything warm and pleasant this month. Four home cooks were occupying the food court from 19:00 to 20:30. We ate home-made ravioli, Indian soul food, ossobuco and more.


Meeting people during Ignite #26 - Erik Diekstra


Ignite is run by locals, for locals. Fast-paced and merciless, speakers get five minutes to present, making use of twenty slides that auto-advance every fifteen seconds. All presentations are given in English.

Ruben Jacobs & Tomm Velthuis (Radio Romantiek)

In Radio Romantiek the romantic takes centre stage. Think literature, cande light, port, maroon and hints of gold. Think Alexander Pushkin and Phil Collins making out on a furry rug. And listen to the soothing voices of Ruben and Tomm.
