About
Ondergronds

Ondergronds is named for those exceptional conversations below the surface.

While travelling through Amsterdam on a daily basis, we pass by hundreds of strangers and rarely get a chance to connect. Ondergronds allows you to have a real conversation with one of those strangers – perhaps the connection will last, perhaps it may inspire other conversations on your daily travels.

About the team:

Manon Veldhuis studied Spatial Design at AKV St. Joost, and currently designs theatrical sets and installations for Toneel Group Amsterdam and Theun Mosk.

Julien Thomas developed urban interventions and creative civic engagement strategies in Vancouver, and studies at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam.

Webdesign: Fabian Hijlkema

Ondergronds is an initiative of the Knowledge Mile Coalition, a community of knowledge institutions, companies, organisations and residents working together along the Wibautstraat and Wesperstraat from Amstelplein to Nieuwmarkt.
