This summer, Ike was invited to speak at the WeMakeTheCity Festival, focussing on urban planning during a Friday morning forum called Making Places. For this occasion, IG Karfield wrote a spoken word piece, inspired by the legacy of Jane Jacobs, titled There is no logic that can be superimposed on human kind.
Check out his performance in the video below, starting at TC 1:23:52.

We are very happy to have put a smile on your faces, and hope to have created the Biggest Smile and be your Most Inspiring Discovery* of 2015 as well.

Amazing news yesterday, when spoken word platform SPOKEN announced the final nominees for The Netherlands’ first national spoken word prize: the Van Dale Spoken Awards®. Ike has been nominated in the category ‘Comedy‘. Furthermore, he will be tagging along for a shot at the night’s grand award, ‘Most Inspiring Discovery 2015‘. There are twenty nominees in total. The award show will be held at the Oude Luxor in Rotterdam, on December 2nd of this year.
We owe a great thanks to Wordbites and PoetryPusher, organizers of RADIATOR, who chose me as the representative for this spoken word event in Radion Amsterdam. It only took them ten minutes on that 22nd October, to find out that Ike would stand a chance in Spoken FM’s first rounds in Amsterdam.
Although it will be a jury of four that will decide on the nominees’ fate, please vote for me as well as my nomination for the comedy award by registering to the site and clicking HERE. It might help!
Don’t forget to love the other nominees if you have the chance. Among them are Ike’s Amsterdam friends Theo Danes, Guus van der Steen, L-Deep, and Justin Samgar.
