Exhibition: Makers of Noord
The Makers of Noord exhibition in Museum Amsterdam Noord puts craftsmanship in the spotlight. Get to know different makers from Noord and listen to their inspiring stories about re-use, sustainability and traditional craftsmanship.
Have you ever considered what the city would look like without shoemakers, woodworkers and car mechanics?
From large goods to small workshops, makers have always been an important part of Amsterdam Noord. Scattered throughout the district you will find individual makers and collectives, craftsmen and creative entrepreneurs. Their future in the city is under pressure, partly due to gentrification. On the other hand, the city heavily depends on these makers to cope with the energy transition and the enormous demand for housing.
The good news is that many makers are still located in Amsterdam, and in particular in Noord. Who are these makers of Noord, what do they make, and how does this contribute to the city, the neighborhood, and our lives? We invite the visitor to think about the future of local craftsmanship. Come and see, share your experiences and tell your own story.
From June 18 to August 27, 2022, the exhibition Makers of Noord can be seen in Museum Amsterdam Noord. Public events take place in July and August where everyone is welcome. Events will be announced through this channel.
The exhibition is open for visits on Thursday until Sunday from 13.00 – 17.00 uur.
Makers van Noord was created in collaboration with Museum Amsterdam Noord, Pakhuis de Zwijger and Centrinno. The exhibition can be seen in Pakhuis de Zwijger from September 2022.
