Where is my nature? Have a look at the very special event that MBO students Tonco, Lize, Zaza, Kaylé, Elise, Amber, Bodien and Quincy organised on 3 July 2020 in Foam.
Ten MBO (secondary vocational school) students in Amsterdam set up the Your Foam project team. Between January and June 2020 they collaborated on the following assignment: design, organise and coordinate an event for young people in Foam, taking into consideration the relevant themes from the On Earth exhibition (currently showing in the museum). The event that was organised by the Your Foam students was cancelled at the start of the corona outbreak in March but the students managed to come up with a spectacular and corona proof version of the event on 3 July, 2.5 months after the original plan had to be shelved, with the title: Where is my nature? You can read more about Your Foam, the On Earth exhibition and the event here.
Your Foam was made possible by Fonds 21 and Lerak Foundation.
Your Foam was developed in close partnership with the ROC (Regional Training Centre) of Amsterdam, Media college Amsterdam and CJP.
