When What Where – last days of July

WWW is a cultural agenda focused on art, music, lesser-known cultural venues, sustainability, community events & self-development. With a soft spot for world-music and multicultural events. 

Dear friends,

One of the best-known feelings for bloggers like me – who don’t pay their rent from blogging – is guilt. Whenever you’re late with your blog posts or spend a long time in radio silence, you feel like a fraud. I really had to prioritize work that pays bills this past month though, hence this half-month cultural agenda. Better late than never, they say where I come from – I abide by that rule. Those of you who are subscribed to the newsletter have received some suggestions for July in their mailbox – the newsletter has priority over everything else – so if you’re one of those who don’t want to miss a thing, make sure to sign up for it.

So, what does the second half of July has to offer us? Find all about it out below.
Have a gorgeous summer y’all!

Thu 19, 19.00, Summer Breeze Latin Night #4 – Westergasterras

I mean: dance dance dance, right? There we go again for an evening of latin & tropical moves in the open air. If you’re into Salsa, Zouk, Bachata, Kizomba this event is gold. If you’re not, trust me, you want to give it a try.

Fri 20, 12.00, Garage Sale – Oko Melting Point (free entrance)

We all need garage sales, I feel. We need to get rid of stuff because, *too much of everything*. Plus, we need to still try to find a coffee set that suits us or a carpet for our living room.

Sat 21, 22.00, Pllek Brazilian Beatroots | Roda da Holanda – Pllek (free entrance)

I’m not going to tell you that life was better before Roda da Holanda’s concerts got well-known, even though I sometimes miss the times when just a few of us knew (wink). The good side: the more people want to go dance to samba classics, the more Roda da Holanda plays.

Sat, 21, 19.00, Surfana Festival After Party – Skatecafe (free entrance)

If you’ve been at Surfana Festival you probably didn’t want it to come to an end because, summer, music, waves and the beach life is all there is in your world. Well, let’s wrap it all up at the Skate Cafe the coming with the tunes of  Lifestyler Radio and Paper Island.

20, 21, 22, 28, 29, Kwaku Summer Festival – Nelson Mandelapark

Kwaku is a huge celebration coming directly from the Zuidoost ‘hood with all its cultural diversity. There will be concerts, DJs, film screenings and, of course, plenty of Surinamese and Indonesian food & drinks, among others. Check the program here.

21, 22, 28, 29, 16.00, Jazz at the Plantage – Amstel 51 (free entrance on Saturdays)

Young musicians of the Conservatorium of Amsterdam bring us this annual jazz festival, to be enjoyed in the courtyards of the Hermitage Museum (on Saturdays) and the Hortus Botanicus (on Sundays). The best menu for a chilled sunny afternoon.

Wed, 25, 19.00, A City Made By People Issue 3 – Amsterdam Launch

The motto of A City Made By People is:  “We support & celebrate citizens who make our cities more liveable”. They’re launching their 3rd issue. This is the perfect moment to go and meet the people behind the words, the images, and the project.

Thu, 26, Where the Sheep Sleep 2018 – a Burning Man Netherlands event – Park Berg en Bos, Apeldoorn

Oh, how happy I’ve been at festival Where the Sheep Sleeps! I’ve written a whole article about this Burning Man Netherlands event. Go read it if you’re not acquainted with the event, get your tickets and let’s go.

Fri, 27, 21.00, Arty Party – Melkweg

As the name states this is both art and party. A two in one which brings together the most surprising works of recent art graduates from all across the country. The presentations and talks will be brought to you by Voordekunst and the tunes by Subbacultcha.

Sun, 29, 14.00, Yoga for Freedom with Catarina | Sukha Yoga (donation-based)

My friend Catarina from All in Yoga is teaching a Yoga Nidra class which is donation-based. The profits will go directly to the organization KIND (Kids in Need of Defense), that fights for the rights of kids separated from their families at USA borders.
