Join us at the Amstelpark for a free drawing walk with your family – with a real artist! Visual artist Liesje van den Berk will take you on a walk and challenge you not to use your phone to record your impressions. Don’t take pictures, but just draw what you see! Or … draw what you hear. Or draw what you feel! Everything is possible.
If you think you can’t draw, don’t worry! Anyone can participate. Even your parents 😉

Saturday, October 31: for adults
3:00-4:00 pm  &  4:00-5:00 pm → sign up
Our phones enable us to inhabit multiple worlds and realities at the same time… but are we still really HERE?
In this walk, Liesje van den Berk asks the participants to temporarily replace their telephone with a blank paper telephone and graphite pencil to walk and draw in silence and concentration in the Amstelpark. Drawing becomes a way to actively experience the richness of one’s environment, and to truly connect. At the end, the participants share one of their drawings on a map of the Amstelpark. These drawings are left behind in the Amstelpark to show a part of the walk, a memory of a moment, to the other visitors of the park.
