What? A bunch of people coming together to talk about accessibility!
When? 8th of October, 14:00.
Till? Jake starts showing photos of his food.
Where? ImpactHUB Amsterdam (location on Google Maps)
Costs? We will cover the venue, some snacks, and your first two drinks.
Sounds good right? If you want to come, tell us on Twitter or send Michiel an e-mail. We also have a few people give a so called lightning talk—these are short talks that last anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes. If all goes as planned, these lightning talks will start around 14:30.
You can roll right into the role=drinks venue! There is an elevator to take you to the second floor—and quite possibly also back down again. Guide animals—be it dogs or dinosaurs—are also welcome. There is a park right outside where you can walk your dinosaur to go poop.
A Dutch sign language (NGT) interpreter will be present for the lightning talks. We do ask you bring your own interpreter for the socialising part of role=drinks.

Thinking about attending
Wanted to come, but can't
Just so we don't invite them a second time…

Who is running this shtick?
Job, Eva, and Michiel somehow convinced people to come to a bar to drink free beer and talk about accessibility—how strange.
Who paid for all of this?
We blackmailed some people into paying for your drink:
