Off The Shelf: “Sex, Stupidity, and the City” evening

Posted on February 10, 2013

By Jennifer Lyon Bell

In this "funky mini-Ted," I'll give a talk called "What Women Really Want" illustrated with lots of spicy filmclips.

A week from Thursday, on February 21, come join us for an evening of short inspiring talks called “Sex, Stupidity and the City” created by Off The Shelf. My presentation is called “What Women Really Want” (with filmclips, of course!) and there are 2 other cool speakers:

– Matthijs van Boxsel on the merits of stupidity

– Co-founder of award-winning DUS Architects Hedwig Heinsman discusses the future of design.

Off the Shelf is Amsterdam’s brand-new literary and cultural night out, with inspiring speakers all doing their thing in English — like a funky mini-Ted. As a bonus, it’s taking place in Amsterdam’s convenient and chic new private club/event space called People’s Place (just off the Leidseplein).

Also featured: Special guest Fashionpack DJ Hart and MC Andrew Maaldrink.

The idea of Off The Shelf is to hear “big ideas and fresh perspectives over a drink or two,” which sounds awfully good to us on a wintry evening. Get your advance tickets here and we’ll see you at the bar!
