Tentoonstelling: Makers van Noord

Featured image

Heb jij weleens nagedacht over hoe de stad eruit zou zien zonder schoenmakers, houtbewerkers en automonteurs?

Van grote industrieën tot kleine werkplaatsen, makerschap is altijd een belangrijk onderdeel geweest van Amsterdam Noord. Verspreid door het stadsdeel vind je individuele makers en collectieven, ambachtslieden en creatieve ondernemers. Hun toekomst in de stad staat, mede door gentrificatie, onder druk. Betaalbaar onderkomen wordt schaars en makers worden de stad uit gedreven.Tegelijkertijd wordt de stad steeds meer  afhankelijk van deze makers voor uitdagingen zoals de energietransitie en de enorme vraag naar huisvesting.

Het goede nieuws is dat er in Amsterdam, en specifiek Noord, nog steeds veel makers zijn gevestigd. Wie zijn deze makers van Noord, wat maken ze, en hoe draagt dit bij aan de stad, de buurt, en ons leven? 

De tentoonstelling Makers van Noord nodigt bezoekers uit om mee te praten en denken over hedendaags en historisch makerschap in het stadsdeel. Bezoekers kunnen eigen ervaringen in het gebied - van nu en vroeger - achterlaten en hun persoonlijke verhalen delen over vakmanschap en de mensen die hen inspireren.

De tentoonstelling Makers van Noord is van 18 juni t/m 27 augustus te zien in Museum Amsterdam Noord. In de maanden juli en augustus vinden publieksevenementen plaats. Voor meer informatie kijk op: www.waag.org/makers

Openingstijden & locatie 
Donderdag t/m zondag, van 13:00 tot 17:00 uur.

Established founders and innovative business owners of top agencies, companies and startups will guide you.

Conversations about a new, inclusive, sustainable and circular economy are becoming more common nowadays. To gain clarity, we should always map the broader ecosystem and go beyond products and customers.

At the end of this Impact Masterclass, we will discuss potential cross industry collaborations and partnerships.
