Tickets

Note, FSTVL is ONLY open to alumni of THNK's Creative Leadership Program, THNK Faculty, and THNK Staff.

If you would like to attend FSTVL but require some financial assistance to make it possible, THNK's Solidarity Fund can help cover the cost of FSTVL tickets, accommodation, and flights. THNK has invested €3000 into The Solidarity Fund this year and will match any contributions by the Community to an additional amount of €2000. We welcome you to donate or apply for funding.

THNK FSTVL is an ‘all-in’ experience—we invite all attendees to participate from beginning to end. With this said, THNK and the Community FSTVL Committees strive to keep costs for THNKers as low as possible and you are welcome to explore the FSTVL 2017 Budget to understand more about costs, expenditure, and THNK's investment in this annual event. We will welcome your feedback on the budget for FSTVL 2018.

It is located on one of Amsterdam’s beautiful canals in the middle of the Nine Streets – a lively area full of restaurants, cafes and independent shops.
