Freedom Dinner

RSVP HERE 7:00 pm cafe droog

… Blockchain, The Internet of Things, and other revolutionary technologies: Threats or New Possibilities?

During the Freedom Dinner (5/5/2017) we want to reflect on our freedom and responsibility amidst rapid changing societal changes and advanced technological developments. More than ever in history we humans are bestowed with the capacity to voluntarily communicate and share knowledge and data with endless amounts of people. How will the ever expanding transparency of informations affect our inner desires in relation to others? And what does this mean to our freedom? Join and participate the dialogue with Yuri van Geest, Dutch Ambassador of Singularity University, and social entrepreneur Laetitia Smits van Oyen. The Freedom Dinner in Hôtel Droog is part of the larger May 4 and 5 festivities in Amsterdam.

The 3-course dinner is based on recipes from the book “Koken in moeilijke tijden; een vrolijk oorlogsboekje” [Cooking in hard times; an uplifting story about the war] by Kyra ten Cate. During the Dutch famine of ’44-’45 her mother (Anna Catharina Antonia Boelen) collected recipes for which her mother’s friend (Atie Siegenbeek van Heukelom) made illustrations.

3-course dinner:
Nettle soup
Pork tenderloin with kidney beans and an onion gratin
