Tijmen Schep

Moderator - AlgoRave Symposium

Tijmen Schep (1981) works in multiple Dutch organisations that support the growth of digital culture the Netherlands, such as The New Institute, where he is a project manager, and SETUP, where he is a co-founder and creative lead. He has a background in both theory and practise, and combines these perspectives to give actionable advise and organise playful events. Strong focusses are.. – the dissemination of critical reflection on nerd ideology and futurism – the emerging of a popular digital culture. – the integration of humanities-based knowledge within fields such as politics and art – the creation and protection of a digital commons – the stimulation of digitally-born forms of expression in general, and mobile forms in particular.
