This is a call from poverty street... because that's what it will be if W139 has to leave here. The city center becomes sour under monoculture. Authentic Amsterdam places disappear or have to move to the periphery. The continued existence of W139 is also threatened and with it the artistic freedom of the city center.
Amsterdammers, residents of the Red Light District and inner city, artists, art lovers, expats, etc
Don't let the city slide down any further. Is that the direction we want to take? partly prompted by covid? Save this stage for hundreds of artists (for example: Melanie Bonajo, Rob Scholte, Ulay, Barbara Visser, Fiona Tan, Kati Heck, Ruangrupa, Remy Jungerman, Carlos Amorales, Michael Tedja, etc) and keep the jobs of the W139 staff.
Preliminary support of ? 200,000 is needed. Not much for a metropolis where the imagination once really had a foothold.
