    Friday: On Friday morning, we finish the artwork. After lunch, we will conclude the week festively at the location in your district. Parents/carers are also welcome to attend! We would love to show you the artwork then too.

    About the artists

    George Adegite (he/him, Sittard, 1989) is an illustrator, fashion designer and art director. While other children used to watch television, George paid more attention to creating his own cartoon. Even then, George wanted to decide for himself what was depicted and made his own drawings come to life. All his ideas still arise from his sketches. Sometimes this is a creative design for his agency Cablai, with which he promotes music. Othertimes it is a comic for SiMSALABiMS, a comic series inspired by stories of local residents from the Bijlmer. George lives and works in Amsterdam.

    Judith Schuur (she/her, Geldrop, 1994) is an actor, theatre maker and teacher. After graduating from the ArtEZ Theater School in 2019, she played in various theater performances, series and a film. She developed the physical youth performance 'Birds Flying Outside' about loneliness and friendship. She can currently be seen in the performance ‘Queertopia’ by Werkplaats van de Woestijne and Luit Bakker, and as Joan in ‘Joan's Theme’, a film by Kiefer Eijckelhof. She is also a teacher at the Amsterdam Youth Theater School. Judith lives and works in Amsterdam.

    Baukje Duin (she/her, Hoogkarpsel, 1970) is a visual artist and teacher. Since graduating from the Amsterdam School of the Arts in 1997, she has combined creating works of art with teaching children and adults. She developed various art projects, including 'Kop & Pui' (2018-2019) where she made portraits of local entrepreneurs based in the Jan Evertsenstraat and currently works on 'Handel in de Maak', with which she offers affordable artworks. She also gives courses in her studio and holds a position at the Clifford Workshops. Baukje lives and works in Amsterdam.

    Oscar Peters (he/him, Den Bosch, 1981) explores themes such as loss, grief and anger in his oeuvre. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and a Master of Fine Art from Carnegie Mellon University. As a visual artist, he mainly creates large-scale, kinetic sculptures. One of his largest installations was on display at Het Klokhuis, with which he encouraged young artists to create works of art. Oscar has a studio at the Domijn in Weesp and lives and works in Amsterdam.

    About ELJA Kindermuseumlab

    In the period 2023-2025, Amsterdam children (9-12 years old) will have the chance to help think about the city museum of the future. What will it look like? And what does the ultimate museum for and by children look like? By participating in the Amsterdam Museumkamp, collaborating on artworks, putting together exhibitions, and installing a children's sounding board group and children's director, Amsterdam children will help build their own children's museum.

    They help open the eyes of the public and staff and make the museum the place for children. But above all, making and looking at art provides opportunities for the children to reflect on themselves, their environment and the world.
