This week started with the emotional tribute for mayor of Amsterdam, Eberhard van der Laan, who announced this week he needed to stop his work because of his sickness. Thursday, I was at the opening of the Unseen photography festival. I especially loved the new work of Charlotte Dumas about wild horses in Japan. In the weekend, I went to the San Sebastian Festival with the ladiesclub of EYE filmmuseum. Baptist stayed home and went to the opening ‘Traces of War’ of photographer Jan Banning at gallery Fontana.

As a journalist, it’s important for me to stay curious about new forms of storytelling. Vlogs (videoblogs) are a fascinating medium, because they challenge me to tell my story in more ways than just sharing information. My vlog gives me the opportunity to enrich my stories with a personal touch, and present them in the most concrete and visually attractive way possible. In my weekly vlogs I take you with me to interviews, backstage at the John Adams Institute and Stadsleven and to all the events I visit and moderate. I’m learning as I go!
