  • Astrid Poot – Fonk Amsterdam – talked about how they developed the family app OntdekNEMO  in the museum with the audience. From the fears at the start of the project (How do you design with the audience?) to their spectacular breakthrough when the team started pretending to be 7 years old.

  • Klasien van de Zandschulp talked about storytelling for public art using two of her current projects: Catch up with your friends from the Golden Age shows what happens when you give 17th century painters and their friends social media on their phone. iPerform takes you on a physical expedition through the museum, past certain works by Van Gogh.

  • Thorsten Alofs – oneseconds – talked about Wisselkantoor (The Exchange Office), an experiment in group consciousness at the 2014 Lowlands Festival. All festival visitors were divided into two groups by the colour of their wristband. What did it mean? What did you need to go through at the “Wisselkantoor” to change it?
