A friendly post-festival networking environment

Next 5 Minutes is always over-programmed because of the urgency of a multitude of concerns that characterise a world in permanent crisis. What is lost is the space for informal encounter and exchange of ideas, and the time to create new coalitions for the future.

Since for logistical budgetary and many other reasons it is impossible to resolve the desire for such a less pressured environment within the festival, we have created a post-festival meeting place and work environment, ideally suited for working sessions and networking meetings.

The location of this meeting is the artist-run imitative "Het Buitenland" just outside the city of Amsterdam, which includes a camping site.

The site of Het Buitenland will be equipped with basic networking facilities as well as meeting rooms and other requirements.

The main function of this post-festival meeting is to set-up new co-operative projects, start longer term working relations and develop new collaborative networks between festival participants.

Further information on the meeting will be posted on the announcement list of Next 5 Minutes, the web site and are available through the production office.
