7–8pm: Thursday Night Detour (Free, max. 12 participants)

Every Thursday night a Detour Guide takes you on a free Detour through one of the exhibitions on display at Het Nieuwe Instituut. Discover design, digital culture and architecture from the perspective of your guide. Every Detour is different: you might end up working on a joint choreography or designing a space for insects.

7.30-9.00pm: ReShaping Architecture with Kokon, Bruil and Movares (Presentation, free)

A symposium organised by Kokon Architectuur & Stedenbouw, Bruil Prefab and advisor Movares about the development of the world's largest 3D concrete printed project, located in Den Helder. Together they discuss the development of this unique design and the design possibilities that this innovative technique brings to the construction industry.

7.30–9.30pm: Research Nights: Threads of Commonality with Sabrina Miller (Discussion, € 7,50/€ 3,75)

Research Nights regularly report on the emerging interests, ongoing investigations and lines of inquiry currently being explored by the Research team of Het Nieuwe Instituut. In this first edition artist Sabrina Miller shares Ways of Listening: a prelude, a project about Black music as a source of knowledge and a portal of transformation and healing. Sabrina's work uses embodiment practices from the Resilience Toolkit (Nkem Ndefo), Nervous System Tools (Char Azad) and the Grief Toolkit (Camille Sapara Barton).
