creativity x liveability
23rd of may 2018 - 19.00-22.00 - tsh collab amsterdam

What does liveability mean in a city like Amsterdam?
What strategies and actions are the municipality taking to make our capital better and more liveable?
How can organizations, brands, and citizens get involved and help play a role in the city?

Join us as we bring the municipality, brands, and citizens together to explore how creativity can impact liveability in Amsterdam. 


We’ll hear from the municipality’s Hiske De Ridder (Stad in Balans) and Amsterdam’s Chief Technology Office.
We’ll examine the role of brands in city-making with a panel discussion featuring
Leslie McGibbon former Global Head of Communications at AkzoNobel,
Maurice Seleky, Head of Marketing and Communications at Pakhuis de Zwijger, plus others.

In collaboration with our friends at Hearsay, the last part of the evening is your chance to have your say,
share experiences about living in Amsterdam and explore what liveability means to you.

Access to the event is free, but we have limited availability so please sign up via the Eventbrite link.
This event is brought to you by Made By People Lab (part of A City Made By People network) in collaboration with TSH Collab.


food x loneliness
17th of may 2018 - 19.00-21.00 - zoku amsterdam

Did you know that 300.000 citizens feel lonely in Amsterdam?
And that there are great organizations out there helping those who are socially isolated?

We feel responsible and it’s time to reach out to those who deserve some extra support. Made By People Lab teamed up with Zoku,
to organize a ‘buddy-dinner’.

Buy-one-give-one, a dinner for two
We have 24 seats available for the ‘buddy dinner’, of which 12 tickets of €26,50 each will be sold to any Amsterdam city enthusiast.
Each ticket is a dinner for two people so you buy one and give one away.

Every dinner is shared, consisting of a meat, fish, vegetarian dish, 1x non-alcoholic and 1x alcoholic drink.

Ready to meet your fellow Amsterdammer?
Please buy your ticket here for Thursday 17th of May, from 19.00-21.00.


24th of may 2018 - 18.00-22.00 - ATELIER SAI

 In many of our advanced societies and cities around the world mental health issues are on the increase. Amsterdam is no different.

For example, over 550,000 Dutch adults suffer from depression each year. Yet we don’t talk about it.

How can we explore the issue through a creative lens and break the taboo surrounding it?

We’ve briefed 10 photographers to explore the subject of mental health, either through a personal story or that of a subject.
Opening on Thursday, May 24, the exhibition of works and stories will run through to Sunday, May 27.

At our launch event, we’ll have guest speaker Steve Wallington (The Photography Movement, UK) and
in-conversations with some of the photographers.
Some of the works will be available to buy with all profits donated to a local mental health foundation.

The Photography x Mental Health experience is a collaboration between
Made By People Lab (part of A City Made by People network) and TOMS,
the lifestyle brand with giving at its core.

Thanks to design firm SAI (Society of Arts and Interaction) for hosting and co-producing this exhibition.
