World first: tweetjam with orchids

Livestream with orchids.

The first ‘tweetjam’ with pot orchids will take place on Thursday May 31st. It will take place in the theatre in Villa Flora at Floriade 2012 in Venlo. The Dutch arrangers Tim van Leipsig and Ruud Hazelaar will be working with two international colleagues to improvise with orchids and create arrangements. From this local event they will inspire people around the globe with orchids via Twitter and Facebook.

The event will take place between 1.00 p.m. and 3.00 p.m. and can be followed direct all over the world via a live stream on the website

Tweetjamming is a new phenomenon. Experts and creatives – they can be musicians, but also chefs and in this case flower arrangers – give a demonstration of their skills and share it with one another and with interested onlookers via social media.

Arranger Tim van Leipsig has been appearing on stages around the world for more than 25 years, but this is still something special even for him. In his column on he talks about how he is looking forward to ‘jamming’ with his colleagues.

Visitors to Floriade on that day can enjoy this unique demonstration free of charge. The theatre can seat 250 visitors.
