Sites of Memory is a project by Jennifer Tosch (founder of the Black Heritage Tours Amsterdam) and Katy Streek (theatre maker and programmer). Since 2016 they create a new performance, a theatrical boattrip about the ‘hidden’ stories about the history of slavery and colonialism in Amsterdam. The audience is taken past historical sites whilst spoken word artists, dancers, musicians and visual artists bring history to the present. This year they will research the theme ‘Emerging Memory’.

The performances dates: 22nd of June to 4th of July 2019

Made possible with the generous support of Netherlands Institute for Cultural Analysis (NICA) and Amsterdam Heritage and Memory Studies (AHM).
