Marleen Stikker wrote an article in the edition of 27 May of newspaper HetParool on the advice of the Art Council of Amsterdam to stop funding medialabs Waag Society and STEIM. STEIM is in danger of losing structural funding from the government, based on a review from the advisor board that called the organisation "closed and only appealing to a niche audience". In the article, Stikker states that this will be damaging the city of Amsterdam in future.

SILENT NIGHT Saturday June 7

On June 7, the SILENT NIGHT event presents a unique opportunity to experience the city as never before: Amsterdam switches off her lights. The darkness maximizes the contrast with the bright light of Ikeda’s installations spread over the city. Ryoji Ikeda and Dream Amsterdam Foundation invite residents of Amsterdam and visitors to actively participate in the SILENT NIGHT event and help contribute to the realization of Ikeda’s Dream, promising to deliver an extraordinary transformation of the city of Amsterdam for one night only.

For participation in the SILENT NIGHT event, please sign up at: http://www.dreamamsterdam.nl
