Visit Streets of the World with your school

Category Exhibitions

The exhibition is ideal to visit as an elementary or secondary school class. The photos enlighten all kinds of facets of contemporary global citizenship; identity, diversity, climate change, globalisation, human rights, peace, conflict and global involvement.

Educational sheets when visiting with your class

Do you want to visit the exhibition with your class? We have particularly developed educational sheets when visiting the exhibition. These includes fun assignments that can be executed on location. These educational sheets are only available in Dutch. When interested, we kindly direct you to the Dutch page where you can download the various sheets.

The Streets of the World is about unity and the fundamental connection between humans all around the world. Photographer Jeroen Swolfs also documented this connection through its photographs by using the same angle, edge of depth and point of view. This consistent technique results in a continuous horizon throughout all images which expresses the solidarity between the photographs as well.

Slow Looking method

We invite you to look at the photos via the slow-looking method: a way to look beyond our first impression. There are 33 blue questions to be found at the exhibition where you can collect observations without giving an explanation or solving problems, like we use to do in our daily lives.

The objective is to share your insights with someone else to immerse yourself in this project at a deeper level and discover even more about Streets of the World.

Prepare your visit

Download the various Dutch sheets in the link above in order to prepare your visit. When you aren't able to visit the exhibition, you can always order the Slow Looking teaching materials in Dutch.

The exhibition is directly displayed next to the train station of Amsterdam Zuid

Imagine going to almost two hundred different countries searching for that one street (or sometimes harbour or railwaystation) that symbolizes a whole community.

Jeroen did it and brought these streets together in his Streets of the World Photo Book.

His Photo Book is for people who want to discover what a street means to society, education, wisdom, youth, experience, happiness, stories, food and so much more.
