We had the possibility to walk around Rotterdam for an hour, right before our talk at Venture Cafe. What an incredible city that still is and always has been. Annabel grew up in Delft, but basically lived in 'Roffa'. We are looking forward to working with children in this city as well!
Today The Boom Bus will be speaking at Venture Cafe, Rotterdam. Connecting innovators to make things happen Venture Café Foundation builds innovation communities. They host the largest weekly innovation community event in Rotterdam. We will host a table from 4-7 pm. Come and talk to us if you happen to be around!
Today The Boom Bus visited the Bijlmer Bajes. In September 2016, the Bijlmer Bajes, an Amsterdam-landmark prison, became a shelter where 600 refugees are now living, 80% of them with papers are waiting for a house in Amsterdam. The Boom Bus will be giving musical workshops this summer and helping to turn this prison into an inspiring welcoming hub for refugees to integrate into Amsterdam.
The Boom Bus will be on air next week! Sublime.fm asked to feature us on 'Nieuws van de Vooruitgang', a news bulletin with messages from all over the world about innovation, sustainability and society. From the latest ideas from smart startups to solutions for climate change and new medical developments. We are so happy to be a part of this. Stay tuned!
