Sky Radio Run

"Put your feet to the beat" and join The Collective's team in the Sky Radio Run in the Amsterdamsebos on Friday 7th September.

This event will be attended by 1500 participants from local advertising and media agencies as well as client companies. It’s an excellent networking opportunity if you're not too precious about your appearance and don't mind sharing a bit of body odour!

Activities commence with registration at 12noon and conclude at 20:00 after dinner and a party. The run itself starts at 15:30.

For full details see

If you'd like to run with The Collective (we'll kit you out in team t-shirts)

There aren't many places left, so get your skates on!

There was a fantastic reaction to the Stutters' shop. National press and TV coverage. Fans. And even sales. They still have the space until Saturday 4th August when there will be a small closing party. check it out. After that it will be a bit of renovation and counter-building before the shop opens proper. I've received a few responses to the offer of exhibition space but more are welcome. And if you have anything fashion-based to sell, such as armbands or gloves, let me know.
