Zina in De Vlugt

Zina in De Vlugt

Zina has moved into De Vlugt artist studio complex in the Slotermeer district of Amsterdam. From this base of operations the Zinas spread out into the local area, to get to know each other better in a neutral and secure environment.
Community Work
OUR DOORS ARE OPEN
Zina has moved into De Vlugt artist studio complex in the Slotermeer district of Amsterdam. From this base of operations the Zinas spread out into the local area. At first all they did is simply ring at people’s doors and invite them to come and step across the threshold of Zina’s studio, where they can get to know each other better in a neutral and secure environment. Women from the local area are welcome to follow workshops here or just pop in for a chat at the coffee morning.

Tafel van Zina has moved her kitchen into De Vlugt to cater for these gatherings and welcome the groups coming to eat.

This year Zina has adopted the Het Plein practical vocational secondary school, and its pupils have found a second home at the studio. Every Tuesday afternoon they attend a Stories of Violence Caravan workshop led by Nazmiye Oral.

Admission is free, so just walk in and get to know other women in your area!

SLOTERMEER
Fatima met Najat in the Slotermeer district of Amsterdam in 2008. Then she met Malika in nearby Kolenkit. And in 2009 she met Ferdousi over on the other side of town, in the Indische district. Their stories were heard in the exhibition in Amsterdam’s western district of Bos en Lommer and in Het Karrewiel community centre in Zeeburg, to the east. The audience also got to taste goodies from their kitchen, and these collaborations led to the setting up of the Tafel van Zina catering organisation.
 
Zina were given a workspace in De Vlugt artists’ studio complex in 2010, and ever since they’ve been running the kitchen from here, catering for encounters throughout the city. And they they pick the vegetables they cook right from the courtyard kitchen garden they created at De Vlugt.
 
Every Tuesday and Thursday the four women provide a safe and welcoming environment for other women living in Amsterdam’s Nieuw West district.
