GESPREKSSTOF BY AFW


︎︎︎JOELLE SLOOTJES / CULTURE

Are you also more aware of the well-being of our planet?
Probably yes, we can no longer ignore it these past years: the water level is rising, climate change is on the march and our consumption behaviour creates mountains of waste.

Do you also feel the desire to strive for change, but don't know how you as an individual can make a difference? 
You're surely not the only one who feels the pressure to do everything immediately right, but changing patterns takes time and is a learning process that is done step by step.

Gespreksstof helps you with these steps and walks with you along this journey towards a more conscious life. We do this by showcasing the steps of creatives towards a conscious and environmentally-frienly production and by engaging in conversation about this process. It's time to end this pressuring war inside ourselves and lower these high thresholds.

Be transformed by conversation.





Gespreksstof consist of two products 


THE GESPREKSSTOF DOCUMENTAIRY SERIES:
This documentary series follows creatives while they create their work in a conscious and environmentally-friendly way . Their creation and production process will be recorded in this documentary series which consists of four editions which can be cornerstones in the learning process of others towards a more conscious lifestyle. The first edition of Gespreksstof is about ‘Power of Local” in which we discuss  different raw materials that can already be found in the Netherlands.


GESPREKSSTOF AFTER TALK:
These documentary episodes appeal to the imagination, provoke discussion and elicit reactions. That is why After Talk is organized after each episode. A meet-up between creatives, interested parties and experts to meet and discuss the most recent episode of the documentary series. Fragments from the episode serve as a starting point for discussion.





THE CONCEPTBOOK AND BUSINESSPLAN:
Gespreksstof brings different disciplines of the creative industry together (art, fashion and design) and showcases their process towards a more conscious life to inspire, spread knowledge and lower thresholds towards this new way of life.
