Every first Sunday of the month BankjesCollectief turns the streets into the largest outdoor café in the world. ‘Open’ your own bench in front of your house or visit other benches in your neighbourhood. The bench owners choose what they want to serve: from a cup of coffee to a tasty lunch and from a beautiful story to a haircut. And afterwards, the café guests decide what it’s worth beside the experience, new friends and a smile.
This relaxed way to meet the neighbourhood was kick started by creative couple Jesse Jop Jorg and Cathelijne de Reede in the East of Amsterdam this sunny Sunday. The BankjesCollectief initiative makes the sidewalk even more an adventure.
Spread the word, register you couch and make it happen in your neighbourhood!
