Tips for a creative weekend
Cyberspace is buzzing, here’s V11’s collection of things to keep you creative this weekend.
The world is ill and needs to recover. While physical presence has hit pause for now, cyberspace is buzzing & bringing people together through arts and culture. We keep seeing comforting gestures and messages all around, which is heartwarming. It’s important to stay connected with one another and keep sharing positive vibes and occurences. Here are nice things we came across to stay active the upcoming few days:
Support Independent Artists
With the live music scene on hold, Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share on all sales for 24h in order to “put much needed money directly into artists’ pockets 💕 We kindly urge everyone in a position to help others to do so. Artists whose shows we were forced to postpone or cancel include Las Kellies, Odd Couple, Paksoi, Cable Ties, Juanfer Marrero Group, PAX the Humanoid, Quarantine Beach, Braids, Erwin Leon, Nap Eyes, Naive Set, The Policy, Manos, Pildrin, Coilguns… Check our agenda for the new show dates.

Movies That Matter
The Movies that Matter Festival that was supposed to take place in The Hague has moved a selection of their films and some interviews online, available for 48h starting today. Attend through here.
Stock up on beer for tonight’s Isolation Rave. Amsterdam’s Club hooked up with VICE Nederland to create a temporary virtual venue. From daytime to early hours of tomorrow morning, sets by local and International DJ’s like Job Sifre, Butterslut, The Daniel and many more are being streamed from the Club. Join the party.
Tussen Kunst & Quarantine
Bring the museum to your living room! Choose an artwork and recreate it using found stuff from around your home!
For you creative/designers out there. Tune into these live talks from the industry-leading creative studios; to fight quarantine-boredom and, most importantly, to instil hope.
After all of that raving and cultural activity, treat yo’self to a Sunday morning cocktail (also to aid the heavy head from that bottle(s) of wine you drunk alone last night)!
