Hang out from your couch this April

Hang out from your couch this April

  • Post Category:What's on?

Amsterdam in quarantine

‘Do one thing every day that scares you’ is a good mantra for times like these. It’s easy to pack ourselves away into our comfortable space, resisting change, retreating from things that frighten us.

Whilst we take a step back from physical contact with the outside world, it’s more important than ever to keep challenging ourselves and trying new things with new people.

Don’t let the days of lockdown blur into one! See what you could get up to here and take an hour or two to experience something different this week. Find out what it’s like to hang out from your couch this April.

We’ll keep adding new online hangouts over the coming days and weeks. Don’t underestimate the impact of time spent with others – even if it’s through a screen.

Among Us

  • Thursday 16th April 20:00 - 22:00
  • Free

After an evening of lies, deceit, and treachery, we return to bring you the next instalment of our Among Us online hangout. Come join and engage your most discerning faculties to root out the traitors in our midst and send them into the endless vacuum of space before they can sabotage the group. We’ll meet beforehand via chat to provide a counterpoint to the lies and trickery that will no doubt come after.

Digital Dinner Party

  • Saturday 18:00 - 21:00
  • Free!

Sometimes we need a little boost to summon up our creative energy. A tasty dinner is a strong contender for the best motivator. Why not share the experience? Just because we can’t have friends round doesn’t mean the kitchen should stop being the centre of your home.

This Saturday we’re getting together with passionate cooks to enjoy dinner together – from drinks beforehand, to after-dinner games astride a messy table. Join from your kitchen and meet fellow foodies through your webcam.

Poker Night

  • Saturday 18th April 21:00 - 23:00
  • Free!

There’s still time to get practising that poker face. Shake up a Vesper Martini and don your best threads – you’ll need every ounce of cunning and a little bit of Dutch courage to come out top here.

Don’t worry if you’re not keen on losing your money – we’ll be gambling only with our sense of self-worth and competitive instinct. 

A far greater risk if you ask me…

Mindfulness and Philosophy Online

  • Every Monday and Wednesday 19:00 - 20:00
  • Free!

Every Monday and Wednesday, neuroscientist, philosopher, and mindfulness coach, Chao, invites you to re-engage with your mind and your spirit. We’ll meet for an hour via video chat and both practise mindfulness techniques and discuss the philosophy behind them. Beginners welcome.

Word Up: The New Normal

  • Wednesday 22nd April 18:00 - 19:30
  • Free!

Amsterdam’s most prolific spoken word organisation have led the charge in promoting self-expression and social inclusivity both in and out of quarantine. This is an opportunity to engage with this strange new world we find ourselves in and share the thoughts and feelings and creations that arise from it. 

You are just as welcome to join the zoom meeting and listen, as you are to share something – anything – that you’ve encountered in the last few weeks. Come join the dialogue. Find out more about Word Up here.
