WHAT IS BARTALK?

BARTALK is a multidisciplinary lecture/performance/storytelling series that takes place in different bars in The Hague. Each BARTALK public event is themed and consists of four 15 minute presentations by guests from different backgrounds.

These presentations can take any form (performances, speculative lectures, demonstrations, live interviews) as long as no powerpoints are involved. In addition to these main events, we also organize accompanying events such as workshops, longer performances, readings, screenings and podcasts.

Since 2015, BARTALK has hosted events featuring presentations by speakers in the fields of physics, philosophy, math, visual art, performance, movement, kink, music, poetry, radio, architecture, and design amongst others.

Ultimately, BARTALK is a model of knowledge-sharing as community-building.
