Sponsored by Atelier GA of the Binnenpret - Maartje, Helena, and friends
I work from an amazing collective studio space that is part of the Binnenpret, and have spent more hours than are probably healthy in the OCCII - behind the bar, organizing A/V Club nights, witnessing amazing moments of music and performance and heckling and general mayhem, seen a few New Years bonfires sparked out in the streets of Amstelveenseweg, cooked in the MKZ, lounged in the garden with a beer in hand when the weather turned nice…
…It’s home to me…and spaces like these that foster such an incredible community of activism and creativity in all realms, are so necessary and vital. Everyone at the Binnenpret, then and now, have fought hard and enthusiastically to make sure the space is free for people to use as they will. And whenever I get angry and depressed at the amount of passiveness and apathy I run into in this city, I just remember that the people I have meet through the Binnenpret who just say, ‘fuck you’ and do whatever needs to be done.
SUPPORT us, but really - support any and all spaces like these in your area.
