Stefan Rosu is the director general and artistic director of the South Netherlands Philharmonic in Eindhoven and Maastricht. The classical symphony orchestra is facing a fast changing environment. In order to survive it needs to adjust. Stefan Rosu's presentation describes how it can do so without losing its basic values. It gives an insight into how musicians and staff can act in that situation.

Leaf City

Conscious Academy

@ VOL 23 ON SEP 17, 2014

Conscious Academy provides us a new way of thinking, recognizing and believing. While having the world in the way it is, you could and have the power to change it and contribute to a better one.

Improvisation on Cultural Entrepreneurship

@ VOL 23 ON SEP 17, 2014

Oliver Olson’s second PechaKucha talk is extremely funny again. He did not know the slides beforehand. Having worked in banking, real estate, IT, education and marketing, Oliver does not need any story to engage his audience.

Show and Tell - Building Communication

@ VOL 23 ON SEP 17, 2014

Archigraphus invents and builds all kinds of constructed interventions in architectural and urban space. By confronting people with architecture, landscape and urbanism in a playful, entertaining and hopefully sustainable way, Archigraphus creates a sense of acceptance, always re-thinking the awareness of the spot and its position in past, present and future.
