On 18th of October ICA  will join forces with The Turn Club ( & Samen met Eva ( and we are going to organize a pitch night around the theme the sustainable and future proof city. During this activity 3 artist and 3 experts will pitch their idea on how we can make the city of today sustainable and future proof, and to make it special we will do this with an artist-mindset. Artist (think of actors, painters, musicans, sculptors) will meet-up with experts and the ICA Young professionals to collaborate on one off todays big issues. The livable future city!

We will take Amsterdam as an example and try to find solutions for the challenges the city has and how a modern city can be bustling and vibrant and on the other hand protect the inhabitants for all the stress factors the modern city has to offer.

After the 6 pitches you can choose to join one of the pitchers in the workshop round to find  - with your fellow young professionals and artist from The Turn Club -  a solution on the question he or she raised during the pitch night.
