Made in Amersfoort, the stage of the creative entrepreneurs from Amersfoort. The goal is to put creative entrepreneurs in Amersfoort on the map. Far too often creative products and services are purchased outside Amersfoort, while Amersfoort is brimming with creative talent and entrepreneurship.
During the period of Amersfoort Creative City (of the municipality, with financial support of the EU), we, Egbert van Triest en Gijsbert Raadgever, have brought together this creative output in Amersfoort. We have organized three markets and a dinner party where a lot of connections and orders have been made and visibility of the region was thereby increased.
We decided to continue the project this year. We updated our website to begin with, where we make use of existing networks like Behance, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Etsy and Vimeo, based on the idea that most creators are already active on one or more of these websites. So what could be better than to benefit from this, for our own purpose of making creators connect with each other?
‘Meeting’ is an important starting point. Especially in this digital era there is a big need for live events. In our country there is a large amount of festivals, conferences and events. Events are ideal for meeting, sharing and coming together, these are things that bring new energy to the table.
During October we organize the brand new edition of Made in Amersfoort in the Rietveldpaviljoen/Huis Van Het Idee, at Zonnehof 1. We want to show a sample of what the creators are producing. Each day a different creator will take the lead, and will be the representative for both the event as well as his own company.
