  • In our opinion a successful interdisciplinary workshop is a workshop that is open ended and aims towards breaking down the barriers between the participants, establishing an evolving culture of collaboration and knowledge exchange.\n
  • Goodmorning everyone welcome to our workshop!\n\nAfter this kick off everyone will get the opportunity to introduce him/herself, so then you will know what we know already: \nthat there is a huge amount of knowledge assembled here, \nand that all this knowledge will be divided in teams that each have very specific combinations of experience on board.\n

    17. 17. After my first week of working for the Noorderlicht restaurant, my bossgives me a token that he is wearing on his wrist too, it is a beautiful andvery nicely made object that I have seen with other coworkers as well. I amreally proud being part of this group of people and wear the token all thetime. It simply looks great and has a nice feel to it.When my friends ask me about the token and where he can get one, I invitehim over to the restaurant because I know that dear friends and somecustomers can get a similar token that is slightly different than the one Ihave received. At their second visit, even though I was not working, myfriends get the best table and a complementary order because mycolleagues recognize their token.Two weeks later, during the first big festival I notice a lot of people withsimilar tokens to mine, we all have a festival token too that I got as anentrance ticket. One of my friends is wearing his Noorderlicht and thefestival token in combination with another variation. He tells me that thisone belongs to the skatepark family and gives him a discount when he goesskating.
    18. 18. awareness of others
    19. 19. hybrid ID
    20. 20. During the day I met somebody who has his own studio on the NDSM andhis token is the coolest one I have seen so far, it is a subscription for adiscount to all the events of the NDSM. He shows me a mobile applicationthat he could download when checkin in at his first festival via Foursquareat one of the previous festivals. There are a lot of of photos in the appstream and a few of them are posted by one most regular clients. I wasalready wondering why this person did not wear a token, apparently somepeople choose be part of our group only by digital means.After installing the app I can only read the several group streams, but afterentering a combination puzzle of symbols that are on my token I amallowed to comment and post my own media. I never thought thesesymbols would have any use, the symbols are also part of a sculpture closeto the Noordelicht entrance,There is a distinct Noordelicht icon on my profile that merged into anothershape after I join the festival group, again by solving a simple symbolicpuzzle. Now my uploads are also showing up in the other group, where oneof my pictures is commented on by a member, who is also participating in alittle yoga gathering that is located on the NDSM terrain, immediately I signup for their try out lessens.After a couple of weeks the NDSM has shown me so many moreopportunities than I thought were around during my first visit and I start toexplore them more actively.
    21. 21. common grounds
    22. 22. 3 months later my profile icon is one of the most diverse of the severalcommunities and I get an invitation to a unfamiliar place on the NDSM topick up a present. I really have no idea what that could possibly be but amreally curious.I come earlier to work the next day and try to find the place. There is thisno sign and the building is not very inviting but there are people inside thathand me a little package after I show them the invitation. It is a token that Ihave never seen before.There is something really special about it even though it is the mostminimal and unimposing token compared to the others. Looking around Isee somebody who is sitting on a table littered with tools, working on thefinishing touches of a token.From this point on I keep getting special invites and can simply walk intoany paid event on the NDSM.
