Connecting and inspiring through workshops and exhibitions with creative and sustainable themes is the purpose of De Korf, which can now be found on the first floor of the Bijenkorf in Amsterdam.
The programme will start with workshops by Keramiek Atelier Amsterdam and food expert Yoram Bremer to combat food waste. Sessions with lifestyle coach Lili Genee are also on the programme. De Bijenkorf is not only a department store, but also a place to be inspired, to use your senses and to be in contact with others. With de Korf there is now a physical space where all this comes together and where everyone is welcome to participate, talk and listen, with themes such as sustainability, art, culture and fashion. Every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday there is something to see, listen to or experience in a programme that changes every six weeks. Also on the agenda for this year are an art market (17th April), a vintage market (24th April) and activities related to local events such as Museum Night, ADE and IDFA.
De Korf also serves as an exhibition space for Oscam, the Open Space Contemporary Art Museum in Amsterdam Southeast. From March 22, self-portraits by illustrator and fashion designer Karim Adduchi can be admired in the Korf. They are embroidered by women of The World Makers Foundation, a community of craftsmen and creative talent from diverse cultural communities, of which Adduchi is a founding member.
