Caring For Each Other

Neighbourhood lady Dien La Croix, Lindengracht 287, breathed her last in her basement apartment at the age of 99, attended by a group of twelve friends, neighbours and informal carers, who raised a glass in her memory outside her home. Messages were then posted in the letterboxes of all residents of the surrounding stretch of Lindengracht to inform them that Dien would be passing by on her way to her final resting place around noon on Friday 27 May, so that we could say our farewells from our windows.

Dien was a very special person.

What’s going on behind the silent facades of the Jordaan district during lockdown? Verhalenfestival Jordaan – the Jordaan Story Festival – asked residents to submit their stories. What’s going on in their heads and in their lives?

Eight of the stories were read and recorded by local actors and used to create the audio walk Niets te zien (Nothing to See).
