KONT Slow Date at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven
KONT Slow Date at De Warande, Turnhout
Organised by KONT magazine
KONT Slow Portfolio Dates are interesting for professionals, students as well as amateurs in the fields of arts, design, crafts or technology. Makers in the widest sense: artists, writers, dancers, lace makers, video artists, musicians, photographers… even inventors and thinkers (philosophers, journalists, theoreticians) are most welcome. The intention is to connect passionate open minded creatives of different backgrounds and generations, to inspire each other and possibly find a fine match.
The Slow Portfolio Dates of KONT magazine are accessible happenings where you get the chance to have one on one meetings with other makers. The concept is very simple: during four or five rounds you will be matched with a stranger with whom you will conversate about your work. Exciting? For sure! Nevertheless, we have noticed that only rarely do our guests make use of our assistance and tools that we bring in order to keep the conversations flowing. For most participants the evening brings unexpected surprises and goes by most naturally.
