The internet is a demanding place. Take a break and join us at The Hmm, where we do the scrolling for you.

The Hmm is an inclusive platform for internet cultures, founded by Evelyn Austin and Lilian Stolk. Through 
 real-life events, online editorials, expert advice and educational programs, we reflect on people’s online behavior, the latest internet trends, the mechanisms behind Big Tech companies and their impact on society. We stimulate diverse perspectives and inclusive conversations by providing a stage for young makers, critics and digital enthusiasts from different backgrounds. We’re currently in our fourth season (2019).

Follow our Telegram channel to be informed of viral phenomena, obscure trends and developments that you shouldn’t miss!
