Educatie en participatie voor iedereen

Wij zijn er voor iedereen die zich verbonden voelt met Amsterdam, zowel in Nederland als de rest van de wereld. Met een open blik kijken we naar onze superdiverse stedelijke samenleving. Voor de schermen en achter de schermen werken we voortdurend aan een inclusieve organisatie, om letterlijk en figuurlijk toegankelijk te kunnen zijn voor iedereen.

Om dit te bewerkstelligen stellen wij experimenten, onderzoeken en innovaties centraal in onze algemene werkwijze. Van Amsterdamse bewoner tot bezoeker, we proberen iedereen op toegankelijke wijze te inspireren, zij het online of offline. Hierbij proberen we verbindingen te leggen die op het eerste gezicht niet altijd vanzelfsprekend lijken.

We proberen samen nieuwe inzichten op te doen en deze uit te werken om kennis op een innovatieve manieren over te dragen. Wij streven ernaar dat iedereen zich bij ons welkom voelt, zowel in relatie tot de stad als tot de bewogen geschiedenissen van Amsterdam. Er is ruimte om je verhalen te plaatsen, je narratief te vinden en je gehoord en gezien te voelen. Er is ruimte om verbinding te krijgen met de mensen die verhalen delen en er zijn partnerschappen door de hele stad die deze verbinding borgen en verankeren.

Female Gaze Tours

Through various stories, artworks and objects, visitors are introduced to the rich past and present of Amsterdam's women.

We dive into the past with well-known women such as Aletta Jacobs and Thérèse Schwartze, but also meet lesser-known women such as Sara de Swart, sculptor and art collector who was part of the literary movement of the Tachtigers and supported many women from that movement financially. She travelled extensively with her companion Emilie van Kerckhoff, including to the Dutch East Indies. Sophia Adriana Lopez Suasso-de Bruijn and Louisa Willet-Holthuysen are also discussed on the basis of their work and donations. In addition, we will look at the feminist movement in the twentieth century, the inequality in the emancipation struggle of white and black women and we will look at the present with the works of Amsterdam artists Naomie Pieter, Willemieke Kars and Fong Leng.

Queer Gaze Tours

Through various stories, artworks and objects, visitors are introduced to the rich past and present of Amsterdam's LGBTQ+ community.

Museum docents who are part of various Amsterdam LGBTQ+ movements will tell their stories with works of art and objects from the Amsterdam Museum collection. Attention is paid to works of art and objects that explicitly give visibility to the LGBTQ+ community. Take for example the coffin that was carried during the Black Pride demonstration in 2020. After the moving ceremony, the coffin was inscribed with the names of victims of racist and queerphobic violence - a celebration of life and death.

In addition, artworks and objects in which the relationship with the LGBT+ community is not immediately visible will be considered. Think of the paintings that depict the city hall. What not every history book mentions is that in the 18th century, the administrative heart of the city also functioned as a meeting place for men. In this way, the tour covers various histories and icons of Amsterdam's LGBT+ community. Stories of inequality, injustice and oppression and stories of pride, collectivity and activism.
