W O K E | manifesto of awareness
February 2020 Johannesburg | Durban | Capetown
Jan Agelink, Amsterdam based trend forecaster, returns to South Africa for his second Trend Safari season to present ‘WOKE’.
‘Woke’ is a growing mindset in society, but it especially identifies Generation Z - young people who grow up in a time with financial crisis, environmental crisis and fake news. The meaning of ‘woke’ moved from ‘being awake’ to ‘being well-informed’. In the last few years it has become a proclamation of awareness too.

TUESDAY 25 FEBRUARY 2020 DURBAN 2PM (Doors open at 1:30pm) The Oyster Box Hotel Umhlanga
THURSDAY 27 FEBRUARY 2020 CAPE TOWN 2PM (Doors open at 1:30pm) Radisson Red Hotel, V&A Waterfront

I think that I enjoy Jan -Trendman - presentations, as they always challenge and inspire your everyday thinking. They combine new modern actions with an international awareness.

' Jan has an new way of visual presenting stories about the future that brings inspiration and new insights. He shows you what the world is already telling you and puts it in perspective so you can actually work with it. Jan is a pro in his field!'
Marjolijn Meijer - Founder, Trainmore & Club Sportive (Netherlands)
"Jan is an inspiring trend forecaster and speaker. He playfully guides his audience through a colourful collection of future scenarios. The trend presentation at our conference was special because it was custom made. He translated his trend forecast for design and fashion into a forecast for our world of mobility and transportation. It's the 'clash' of these worlds that opens up new space in our way of thinking."
Erik Verroen - Principal Advisor, Rijkswaterstaat (Den Haag | Nederland)
Jan is engaging, interested and able to provide excellent direction in the universe of fashion and trends, Chapeau Jan.
