Brainwings, inspiration and an insight into the brain of the makers, those are the Talent Talks. On Friday December 13th a special program with makers who deal with illustration and animation. A perfect combination for Pop Up Cinema and Wobby.club. During these Talent Talks you will get a wonderfully extensive meal in the kitchen of Next-talent Jelle van Meerendonk, Pien Kars and Simon Lynen.

They show what inspires them through fragments, photos and their own work. They shine a light onto their work process and experience.

Just in time for Christmas you will be able to buy your Christmas presents, for example the latest Wobby, a Risoprint, work by one of the makers or a Pop Up Cinema bag designed by Next talent Jelle. The talents of this evening showcase and sell their work!

And all that while enjoying a drink!
