Pop-up Photo Event was a big success

The best place to see the pictures of the Streets of the World Project is where they were taken: in the streets. The pictures were shown from 3 – 7 November 2016 life-size in the Kempering multi-storey car park in Amsterdam Zuidoost. Over 3000 visitors walked through the car park where almost 200 street photos took them on a world trip. Along the way, street food was available from the world kitchen specialist World of Food. The guides and attendants came from Amsterdam Zuidoost and told their stories of the pictures with which they, in their own way, had a connection. The admission was free.

New exhibition coming up

On 15 June Streets of the World opens a new exhibition on terrein Hembrug in Amsterdam-Zaanstad. The Ministry of Defence’s former HEMbrug site has become a creative incubator – a surprising hotspot of urban culture blended with heritage. A place where nothing is ordinary and that offers countless possibilities. A flexible and versatile location that blends authenticity, entrepreneurship, craftsmanship, sustainability, innovative strength, and a community that is eager to move forwards into the future. It is the ideal location to make a world trip through the 195 photos of Jeroen Swolfs.
