Exhibition: The City is Ours (Werkplaats Molenwijk)

On 8 March, International Women’s Day, the exhibition The City is Ours opens at Werkplaats Molenwijk in Amsterdam! With installations, photography, and videos made by young women in Amsterdam and Tunis, reflecting their visions on what our cities should look like. The exhibition is on view (extended!) to 23 April 2019.

The City is Ours is a project in Amsterdam (Molenwijk) and in the Tunesian capital of Tunis (in the neighbourhood Fouchana), in which a group of girls and young women take ownership over public space. What would they change if they had the power to decide? What are their ideas on improving our cities so that they feel safe and welcoming to everyone?

In February 2019, the participants followed multiple workshops under the guidance of artists, photographers and architects, in which they created artworks surrounding this theme. The result will be presented to the public in the The City is Ours exhibition at Werkplaats Molenwijk.

Opening 8 March

10.30 – 13:00
The exhibition will be opened by Erna Berends, from 11:00. There will also be speeches by Kati Piri and Sacha Prechal, and a Q&A with the participants! Followed by festive bites and drinks, courtesy the European Parliament Liason Office.
