Amsterdam is becoming more and more international every day. People from all over the world are moving to this wonderful city to live and work. It’s becoming one big cultural melting pot. A great recipe for diversity. But who are these people? What brought them here? What moves them and makes them tick? We wanted tell their stories. To share their thoughts, experiences, hopes and beliefs. We wanted to give them a face and a voice.
Intrigued by the platform HONY (humans of New York) we started talking to expats and taking their photo. Now, after 50 interviews the Expats of Amsterdam (EoA) idea is slowly starting to move. We just started the platform but are keen to make it a place for people to be inspired by the stories of those who took the leap and moved to Amsterdam. We’ve started a Facebook group as well for people to interact with each other about relevant topics. The goal is to bring people’s stories together so others can learn and be inspired by them.
We’re always looking for ways to improve and believe feedback is a gift. Therefore please let us know what your thoughts are and if you have any suggestions for us to improve.
Thanks a lot and we hope to see you again on EoA.
Team Expats of Amsterdam
