The Kinkerstraat used to be a typical Amsterdam shopping street. In recent years, the street is changing fast from shopping street to a street where you meet your friends in a coffee bar or get a deli take-away. What are the effects on the neigborhood?

Eva Pel and Marieke Geljon will take you on a tour through the Kinkerstraat and tell you ins and outs about the entrepreneurs and their experiences. The tour is part of the public program Pel and Geljon organize around their artproject and exhibition Kinkerboulevard, which can be visited at the Library de Hallen after the tour.
