Dear Mr Mayor …

Somaye Dehban shares the story of what Amsterdam’s late Mayor, Eberhard van der Laan meant to her family. Her son was stateless, unable to have a nationality, until they “all became Dutch” at a ceremony the Mayor presided over.

The making of ‘Faces on the Ferry’

We interviewed local illustrator, Rachelle Meyer, about her sketchbook project ‘Faces on the Ferry’. She told us why she started sketching the people she saw every day on her ferry commute from Amsterdam Noord to her studio in the city centre.

Short interview (4:53)

“I can just kind of stand here and … intimately doodle on the ferry.”

(Broadcast on Salto 1 TV in ‘Salto Shorts’.)

Extended interview (13:45):

“Starting Therewise Enterprises was … a way of encouraging us to make personal projects important again.”

(Broadcast on Salto TV as part of our ‘Amsterdam Startup Stories‘ series.)

The kitchen table interviews | SDL S05E06

This autumn we invited two Amsterdam-based creators over to Cathy’s house to talk about their recent work …

Jesus de Vega, choreographer (jesusdevega.com)

On his piece, Stigma: “I felt that there was a change in the climate … more homophobic voices … I felt that, as  a maker, I wanted to somehow make a stand for the LGBTQ community .”

 

Emilio Brizzi, photographer (emilio-brizzi.com)

“We are given this beautiful memory … so we can recall the time before we were here … And so maybe … it’s good thing to record a time when we are here , so that your children will eventually look back on these years and find some tangible proof of what it was.”
