Thursday at WeMakeThe.City

‘Take good care of our city and each other’ was the mayor’s call to action for his beloved citizens. During WeMakeThe.City this call will be answered in various ways. You can have a coffee, lunch and a chat with newcomers from the adjacent asylum seekers center at 5 Coffee Connect or taste beautiful Middle Eastern dishes at restaurant A Beautiful Mess – in the former Bijlmer prison, also prepared by newcomers.

Organisation de Regenboog, takes you on a tour through the Westerpark, showing three locations where they work on making the city more social. And you can make new friends at the Social Summer Market, where societal organisations present themselves and you can join all kinds of activities.

At night, at Pakhuis de Zwijger, urban loneliness will be addressed during the urban conference Design Solutions to Urban Loneliness’ (English only). A diverse mix of people will discuss how architecture can stimulate the connection between people on all levels.

The best way to meet people is going out, for instance to an exhibition. Below, you’ll find a list of all exhibitions you can visit on Thursday.
