Creativity In The 'PINC' Coming To Sarasota

PINC Sarasota

Sarasota this week is hosting an out-of-the-ordinary symposium that has its roots in the Netherlands.

This is the second year the city has hosted the Amercian version of the PINC Conference, a symposium that's brought together creative types in the Netherlands the past 16 years. Think of it as a European version of TED Talks, with a twist.

Sixteen speakers will be featured at the second conference of PINC, which stands for People, Ideas, Nature and Creativity. They range from a BMW executive who focus on how the car brand cars sound, to natural history filmmakers to a scientist who created what's called The Cloud Appreciation Society.

WUSF's Lisa Peakes spoke  with Anand Pallegar, director of PINC USA, about how the program's blending of arts, science and even food together changes the way people see the world.


Almost every day, I come before the microphone with the same enthusiasm as the Dani Rojas character in the “Ted Lasso” television series. I do 100 pushups, take some laps around the house, thank my supervisors and audience for giving me the opportunity to do what I love, bellow “Radio is liiiife” from the back steps, and bound back to my garret and get to work.
