Reserve a spot via the Eventbrite link here! As always it’s a pay-as-you-feel kind of event because we like to keep it low threshold and open to anyone. However, because we do live in a capitalist world, things cost money and we do need to pay for them. We suggest a minimum donation of 15 euros for the Grand Opening or any of the Workshops. This money will go to paying the travel-tickets and accomodation for the photographers coming from aboad, it will pay for some additional groceryshopping, the rent of the space, the printing of the photography and loads of other small and big investments we had to do to make this event possible.
Since September 2016 TBYW has been proudly giving workshops at primary schools. This workshop is designed to teach the little ones how they can be food heroes and make a difference. In a fun and playful manner they learn everything about the problem of food waste, it’s consequences but more importantly how to do something about it!
*The workshop is in Dutch and meant for kids ages 9 – 13.
