Waag Society

Waag Society researches, and develops concepts, pilots, and prototypes at the intersection of new technology and art. The project-oriented foundation aims for social innovation, focusing on healthcare, art and culture, education, sustainability, and society in general.

Waag Society conducts experimental, interdisciplinary research, in close cooperation with a relatively small number of users: 'creative research'.  Users have a central position and a large influence on the final project result: 'users as designers'.

Some particular user groups have difficulties accessing the Internet.  Waag Society enables these people to do so by, for example, The Storytable, a multimedia table for the elderly to share stories, and Pilotus, an icon-based communication tool for the mentally impaired.  As one of the founders of Creative Commons Netherlands, Waag Society helps authors, artists, scientists and teachers to handle their copyright in a flexible way. Waag Society cooperates with public and private parties.

Many of Waag Society's projects found national and international acclaim and were awarded over the years.

Waag Society is housed in the Waag and since 2006 in cultural hotspot Pakhuis de Zwijger as well. The Waag is the oldest secular building in Amsterdam. Pakhuis de Zwijger is a renovated warehouse in the former Amsterdam dock area.
