Since the beginning of 2020, Framer Framed has its own artist community who works every Monday from Framer Framed during their art therapy with i-psy Arts Amsterdam. Mayis is part of the Open Atelier community and took part in the exhibition Proud Aliens (30 Jul-22 Aug 2021) at Framer Framed.

We asked what art means to Mayis and how she feel about the collaboration between i-psy Arts and Framer Framed.

“I am very happy that there is a cooperation between i-psy Amaterdam and Framer Framed. I feel the synergy between the organisations. During our open atelier activities at Framer Framed we are surrounded by art and people also keep working on their art. Before I was feeling alone and lost. Now, I realise that I created a bond, a relationship, between myself and the city. It is alive, and I am also part of it.”
