AHK Starterscafé

22 April | Translate your idea into a concept

What will you learn during this evening?
You have an idea buzzing around in your head. How do you translate that to paper? How do you turn that into something concrete? That begins with the questions: who are you making it for and why? In the workshop of this evening, you will learn how to systematically put your ideas into words; to commit your concept to paper. The result? A concrete story that will be the foundation for your project plan; a story that will resonate with those people with whom you want to collaborate.

About Wendy van Os

In 2018, Wendy received the Anne Faber Stipendium: a scholarship for talented business leaders and creative producers in the performing arts. A fun fact: Wendy came up with the concept of the AHK Starterscafé, and was previously the programme coordinator. Thanks Wendy.

"A well-designed concept engages not only your sight and hearing but also your sense of smell, touch, and taste. A proficient concept creator orchestrates the complete experience, leaving nothing to chance."
