The wonders of doing nothing, wandering and becoming a ‘card-carrying member of Wonderland’.

In this Audience Takes the Stage edition, three of Amsterdam’s creative community examined what it means to wonder.

Moulsari Jain was up first, exploring how doing nothing can do wonders for creativity. The unconventional designer and entrepreneur advocates time to breathe and the ability of “being” as a powerful tool for good.

Emerging artist Ioana Bacanu transported the audience to Barcelona to tell us tales of her time living as part of a collective, using wonder as a way to create.

Finally, content creator, recovering lawyer and self-proclaimed ‘card-carrying member of Wonderful’ Alice Ramsay explained how wonder can be a force for radically redesigning your life.
