Speaker at ‘Locally Speaking – Slums, Squats & Skyscrapers’

Date(s) - 22-mei 2017
19:00 - 20:30


Students in shipping containers, breweries in former animal shelters and hotels in cranes. Is it too soon to discuss living arrangements?

Tonight we take walk through the rich history of Amsterdam city planning, social housing and vacancy versus gentrification. Find out what’s going on in the outskirts of town, why it’s impossible to rent cheaper then €1000 a month while there are so many vacant offices, why half the city has moved to Almere and why the remaining half is making a solid attempt to buy the coal plant in the west of town and turn it into a chocolate factory. I am invited to join the discussion during this event.
