The fourth section, Inspiration, tells you a little about what inspires me, TOT’s owner, Marijcke Voorsluijs. Where does my knowledge and experience stem from? Where does the energy come from to keep trying out new ideas? Why am I doing all this? » read on about Inspiration
A degree and a half, years of work experience and savvy of the worldwide web all combine to create a great package. However, my greatest source of inspiration has been TOT’s clients. They ask the questions and pose challenges, as a result of which my expertise is growing. This is why I have outlined a few of them on a separate page on this website. It is not that the other clients are not important, inspirational or interesting, but not every client likes that degree of attention. Or perhaps the page is not quite finished yet.
On the client page you can read about what type of organisation they are, what TOT does for them and what the client means to TOT. You can see the client’s website, see their activities on various social media, and read their Twitter timeline live.
The links at the top and bottom of the pages help you browse easily through the client pages. The order? The length of the business relationship with the client.
Facebook is an extremely popular friend network for sharing messages, links, photos and videos with friends. I think Facebook is a fantastic platform for keeping contact with friends and colleagues from the past and present, as well as for exchanging recommendations about great performances, practical tips and the latest news about the internet, technology and social media. Moreover, I know all my Facebook friends. “Of course!” you say? well, just view this clip.
Facebook and the outside world
However, Facebook does not easily acknowledge defeat; on technical forums you can see how easy it is to share to Facebook. Pages you find, tips you like, pictures you take via all sorts of apps, trips you book and theatre tickets you buy – you name it and it comes with the blue Share or Like button.
Both adored and reviled, a digital water cooler or an open sewer: Twitter is such an open and accessible medium; you can do anything with it. You either love it or hate it.
Twitter is the fastest news source – texting with the entire world, putting you out there, a light way to establish and maintain contacts. It is a medium to truly grow into, one you will not master within the hour, and if used properly will allow business and private contacts to brush elbows. That is what excites me about it. Gradually you discover which style of sharing suits you best, and who you wish to follow, or not. » read on about Twitter – your fastest source of news
In 2011 Instagram shot in 2011 as a comet to the top of all lists of most frequently used apps. A year later, Facebook took over for $ 1 billion. There is an app for iPhone and Android on the phone or tablet of millions of people.
Take a picture with your mobile , open Instagram, make a square cut and edit the result using a series of filters. Bumps are erased, colors refreshed or faded. Add a frame, play with contrast and sharpness. Your picture seems to be made in the seventies, in black and white, as Polaroid or with a view camera. Out of a simple cup of coffee or, as in the example above, a mossy dock, you make a snap something funky. » read on about Instagram – photo editing and social medium
DeLaMar is a contemporary two-auditorium theatre (more than 1500 seats), a Grand Café and various foyers that are also suitable for events. An exceptional photo collection hangs in the foyers. Janine van den Ende purchased various works, but in particular commissioned five prominent Dutch art photographers with the theme of ’theatre’. Erwin Olaf, Viviane Sassen, Hans Eijkelboom, Cuny Janssen and Koos Breukel each provided their own interpretation of this theme. » read on about DeLaMar Theatre
Museum Het Dolhuys wants to leave visitors with a positive and lasting impression, one that contributes to the de-stigmatisation of people with a psychiatric disorder. It does so by creating a personal encounter with the (ab)normal. In the museum you interactively experience the boundaries between lunacy and run of the mill, normal and abnormal. » read on about The Dolhuys Museum
With sky-high ogive arches and magnificent art treasures, the recently restored Pieterskerk in Leiden is an awe-inspiring building that boasts a fascinating history, making for an unforgettable setting for each and every event – whether a grand dinner, congress or exhibition in the sanctuary and the nave, a concert under the stained glass windows, or a private meeting in the seventeenth-century period room. » read on about Pieterskerk Leiden
