When What Where May

Dear readers,

When What Where is back with some cultural goodness for the month of May, in Amsterdam. It starts with the celebrations of Liberation Day, which mark the end of German occupation during World War II. This is possibly the most symbolic day in modern Dutch life. This month there are plenty of chances to party in a tropical fashion, but also plenty of events related to sustainability and self-development, themes that are dominant on ‘Amsterdive’. Without further ado, let’s jump into this month’s cultural pool! As usual, let me know your thought on all this and also, feel to add in the comments down below any activity I might have forgotten and that should definitely be included here. Enjoy the Spring! 🌿

When What Where April

April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go”.

Dear all,

Allow me to highlight three of the events I am SUPER looking forward to this month:

First of all, SHFT Happens, on Saturday 7! A one-day immersion where work feels like a retreat, where you get energy & nourishment from focusing and getting stuff done. Amsterdive partnered up with SHFT and we’re giving away discount codes – check all the info below.

Then, in the category of dancing as if there was no tomorrow, an evening of Lumberjacks in Hell at Noorderlicht, on Saturday 14, with the bright presence of DJs Mr Mendel, Marcel Vogel & Tom Noble!

Finally, in the category of culture, the concert “Symphonic Cinema: Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé’ a concert + film at Het Concertgebouw, courtesy of the Amsterdam Culture Club.

A cool thing? You can join me for all three of these programs – let me know if you do! And for now, enjoy the cultural agenda, and feel free to add any cultural suggestion of yours in the comments down below. đź’«

When | What | Where November

Amsterdive’s cultural agenda WHEN | WHAT | WHERE was taken over by aliens!
(well, not, but almost)

Ladies & Gentlemen,

I’m delighted to present you a cultural agenda for November curated by a handful of my favorite fellow bloggers (and instabloggers)! Andra Stefan from Amsterdamming, Carole Rey from Good Enough Darling, Dana Marin from Amsterdamian, Dani Bordiniuc from Coffee & Stories, Deepa Paul from Instagrambloggers, and, last but certainly not the least, Jan Arsenovic from Jan in Amsterdam, all accepted my invitation to participate in the Blogger’s Edition of When | What | Where! đź’Ą

It feels AMAZING to have these fine creatives onboard with me. You might know some of them already. They’ve been commitedely documenting and creating content about Amsterdam and The Netherlands by means of articles, photography, video, even books (!). So this is my present for you, guys (better said – our present). After all, Sinterklaas is just around the corner. Make sure to visit the blogs of these marvellous six and check out what they’ve been up to.

With no further ado, let’s take a look at what is getting this team excited for the upcoming month!

Agenda, people

Say hello to Elise Gherlan

I kept on bumping into her. We met for the first time at an Instagrammers event and then we stumbled upon each other at the Creative Mornings. She was cheerful, super talkative, and she came across as a real creative entrepreneur because she not only had loads of ideas but also the sort of energy which is necessary to put them into practise. The second time we met she told me, “I took a nice photo of you, last time at the meet-up, you know? I’ll send it over.” The next morning I had the photo you see on the right bar of the blog in my e-mail box. I had a wow-reaction. I was kick-starting Amsterdive at the time, so the picture came in handy. Elise’s kindness stuck to me.

I’m back from my mini sabbatical. I did miss writing cultural agendas this past month. It feels good to have an overview of the interesting things going on in the city and to curate the cultural possibilities Amsterdam offers us, even if – as you can imagine – I cannot attend all of the events that I highlight. This is a bit of a weird job to do, at times, if I think that I spend time working on something so ephemerous. I mean, one writes everything down after hours of research, nice and carefully, and then puff! the thing is gone. Whether you’ve been to the event or not, it is over, and nobody ever cares to go back to that one article again. Other than that, it is also an intangible, never-ending job. You can keep on organizing agendas for your whole entire life and you might have a feeling you are not accomplishing anything, as opposed to a thoughtful essay or article, which is supposed to have a long lifespan. But then there’s this: the cultural agendas are useful. Not just for me, but for others as well. This way, I hope I can be of service. I mean, I might write about a very interesting festival but if I never let people know in advance when and where is it happening, making possible for others to experience it too, I feel I am doing just half of the job.

To ease everything out though, Amsterdive’s agendas are going to be published monthly from now on and will be updated weekly. So that we all have a reason to come back to it for one whole entire month. AND, from September on, we are going to have contributors sparkling everything up with their best advice.

Without further ado, here are some events I’d like to highlight for the rest of the month of August. If you get overwhelmed with so many options, feel free to shoot me a message: I can help you out navigating this list.
