|Scooped by Robin Good|
If you live or plan to be in or near Amsterdam in the second week of January you may want to take note of this one-of-a-kind free event totally designed around the topic of curation.
"The Art of Curation" will take off on Wed the 14th from 5pm highlighted by a line-up of short-presentations focusing on different aspects of content curation, from the legal to the educational and commercial ones.
- Klaas Joosten – ZEEF
- Coen Koppen – HowardsHome
- Wout Laban – Gibbon.co
- Eric Kokke – GOopleidingen
- Merel Teunissen – Versteeg Wigman Sprey Advocaten
- Dr Jan Hein Hoogstad
- Marian Pronk
The strategic relevance of content curation in the future of online information, search, learning and education is the focus of my closing presentation, where I will also showcase 10+ examples of online projects that represent tangible examples of how curation can also be an economically sustainable activity.
Of note is also the fact that the event takes place in the wonderfully restored 18th-century Herengracht 182 building designed by architect Ludwich Friedrick Druck in 1772 (one of Amsterdam's first houses to be built in Louis the Sixteenth style).
Why you may want not to miss this opportunity if you are into *content curation*?
- the place and the people already signed up are worth the time
- it looks like there may be good networking opportunities
- you never say no to free food and drinks when offered
- I'll be there
The event is free for everyone to attend.
N.B.: If you plan to participate you are kindly invited to reserve your seat.
