Full Description

“Diversity is in Amsterdam’s DNA.”Eberhard van der Laan, Mayor of Amsterdam.

180 nationalities give colour to the capital of the Netherlands. In this book, each story has a name and a voice. Discover the entire world in one city and the story behind the 180 nationalities who have made this beautiful hub of culture their home, through this unique project featuring 180 portraits and accompanying interviews. In an ever-changing world the discourse surrounding multiculturalism is always a hot topic. Amsterdam considers its massively mixed, diversified population to be one of its key assets. This book celebrates open-mindedness, encourages tolerance, and provides a platform for minorities to share their personal experiences.
