December 01 2014

Stadsleven: Made Here

Production and manufacturing have long been separated from the city. But there is a return of makers to the city. Craft is visible and valued. In Stadsleven 'Made Here' we examine why the label 'Made in the City' has again become something to be proud of.

Guests this edition: Dus Architects (3D printed canal house) Judith Lekkerkerker (Ruimtevolk who wrote a manifest about the consequences of digital production for the city), Marjolijn Boterenbrood (World Wide Nieuw West that shows the world wide production behind local companies), EYE and Nicole van Dijk (Museum Rotterdam who gives a preview of the exposition 'Echte Rotterdammers: wat maken we nou?")

Stadsleven (Citylife) is the monthly talkshow of Tracy Metz, about living in cities and Amsterdam in particular. Partners of Stadsleven are De Groene Amsterdammer, EYE and People's Place. The program is in Dutch.

The Kilkennys

The Irish folk group The Kilkennys translate the folk music of their country to a new generation without losing the essence of this genre. The Kilkennys have given new life to classic hits like "Whiskey In The Jar" and The Wild Rover". This band proves that Irish folk still has a future. The Kilkennys have been performing now for over ten years. And over time they have shared the stage with folk icons such as Shane McGowan and Finbar Furey. They also have a strong fan base in America. PLEASE NOTE: This show has been moved from Paradiso to People's Place, recently bought tickets are still valid.
