A unique experience awaits visitors of TECH KNOW FEST: “Museum of Wonder”
Hidden behind the wall of a DJ booth, the Museum of Wonder transports you to another world. The space is equipped with an immersive audio-visual art installation designed to captivate and engage IT professionals through a unique combination of technology and sensory experiences. This conceptual collaboration between TECH KNOW FEST and Edwin van der Heide, a renowned artist, composer, and research, aims to push the boundaries of traditional artistic expression and transport you into a world where art, sound and space converge.
A unique venue on the outskirts of Amsterdam. The Patronage is located at a former industrial area called ‘Hembrugterrain’.
This terrain used to be the Royal Dutch ammunition factory and nowadays ‘The Patronage’ habits one of the factory warehouses. The building is amazingly inspiring because of its historical architectural characteristics. With its 500 square meter surface and 8 meter high ceilings visitors of TECH KNOW FEST will be blown away by the sheer appearance of the building. Especially for those who admire industrial authenticity.
