At PINC, we always promise a day full of surprises, big and small. Our speakers often surprise the audience with their passion for things most would never dream of - Making an entire corner store out of felt just for kicks and having that capture the attention of the international art world, anyone? How about becoming an educational ambassador for NASA all because you bought an old, used space suit off of eBay and took incredible pictures in it?
Begun in 1999 in The Netherlands by Peter and Nelleke Van Lindonk, the annual PINC (People. Ideas. Nature. Creativity.) conference has grown into a yearly celebration for the inquisitive and forward-thinking, the passionate and the bold, bringing speakers from around the world to open their hearts and minds to the audience.
The creative conference PINC (People, Ideas, Nature, Creativity) will return for its fifth year from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6. The event, created by DreamLarge, the philanthropic arm of the web development company AtLarge, and presented by Ringling College of Art and Design, is intended to present a diverse selection inspiring, creative speakers. Announced speakers so far include Nashra Balagamwala and John Marzluff.
PINC does not have to prove itself as a unique stage where unexpected small and great stories come alive. PINC has been there for 18 years and always excites. The event continues to attract new visitors and tempt loyal fans to return to Figi in Zeist every second Tuesday in May. That lasting attraction is probably due to the fact that the 'teenager' behaves like a child: playful and receptive, full of wonder and innocence.
