Mama Louise > Story Stratenmakerij
Placemaking specialists

Amsterdam, 2012 - present

Mama Louise is specialised in placemaking. As a concept developer, facilitator, curator and energy maker, it is our strength to think in terms of possibilities, to turn the problem into something new and to revise the current dynamic. With our approach and methodology we create a revitalised energy and a spark in vacant buildings, shopping streets and places that have lost their soul.

Mama Louise has experience in setting up places in shopping streets that provide a new dynamic. Examples are:

de Stratenmakerij • tracking talent and creating a spin-off for vacancy of the street

de Wisselwinkel • kickstarter for new shop entrepreneurs

de Toko • living room restaurant with local chefs

de Grote Wisseltruck • kickstarter for new food truck entrepreneurs

Mama Louise detects talent and entrepreneurship, adds creative value and ensures media reach. This creates a special place in the street, which also functions as a flywheel for other vacant buildings. There is process-oriented and very close cooperation with its local parties and local entrepreneurs.

"We love you doing what you love! – Jane Jacobs".

Mira ter Braak is co-founder of the Mama Louise Foundation. She applies her experiences and knowledge from Buro Mos as art director and concept developer. For example, in cooperation with the parties involved, every concept, project or store is carefully considered and advised on the visual and spatial experience. This input is used to develop a spatial design for the entire area, the physical location or store. Parallel to these processes, we work together with branding experts on an identity, so that a customized branding is developed in line with the story and experience.

"Our motivation to start Mama Louise came from the joy we felt in helping people realize their dreams. Recovering their self-esteem and trust that creates a sparkle in their eyes".

The first entrepreneur in the Wisselwinkel was bicycle repairman Rathu Gunawardana; from his garden in the Van der Pekbuurt he repaired bicycles from neighbors and friends. In February 2013, he seized the opportunity to turn his passion into his work. And opened the bicycle shop Rahtour, where Rathu also sold refurbished bicycles in addition to the bicycle shop and made customized advice about equipment for cycling trips. The pilot period in the Wisselwinkel proved to be a huge success: so much so that Rathu was able to move into a larger building in Van der Pekstraat at the end of August 2013 in order to continue his business on a larger scale.

de Modestraat > Story
Creative neighborhood hub at Nieuwendam-Noord > kick off

Amsterdam 2011

The Modestraat is a creative hub where designers and cultural entrepreneurs work on creative projects inspired by and together with the neighborhood.

This is done on the basis of the theme `fashion’  in the broadest sense of the word. The Modestraat housed itself from the beginning of 2011 in a vacant retail building in Amsterdam Nieuwendam-Noord. A location in the middle of a ‘under construction ‘ shopping mall and a neighborhood in full development. Besides the renewed neighborhood mix of current residents with new residents, even the name of the area changed from ‘Nieuwendam’ to now called Waterlandpleinbuurt. An unexpected location where designers and other creative minds have developed numerous initiatives through this theme as a connection method over a period of more than two years. In addition to the regular workshops, a diverse program has been created from monthly events, one-off projects to multidisciplinary festivities. This not only makes the Modestraat a symbol of a meeting place with various possibilities, but also gives impetus to local entrepreneurship and talent development in the neighborhood.

"Mira ter Braak was founder and art director of ‘de Modestraat’. She initiated this artist initiative in the North of Amsterdam, she curated and encouraged the creative hub, where cultural entrepreneurs, local start-ups and neighbourhood residents rent workspaces, inspire each other and work together on creative projects."

Creative neighborhood hub at Buikslotermeerplein > follow up

After its first location in the Waterlandplein neighborhood, from the end of 2013 the Modestraat is located in a former Chinese restaurant on the Buikslotermeerplein in Amsterdam Noord. At this location, the creative hub has grown into a committed, creative community that makes people's lives more colorful and helps realize dreams from a special home base. This is done by bringing them into contact with art, culture and creativity and by bringing about special encounters. The Modestraat enters into new connections, often across the boundaries of disciplines and with other social domains. Special stories are made in collaboration with entrepreneurs, volunteers and local residents. And through this approach, the ultimate cross-fertilization between creative breeding ground and a place for the neighborhood has been created.
