Social Capital was made possible by: the Mondriaan Fund, Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, Van Eesteren-Fluck & Van Lohuizen Foundation, and the Prince Bernhard Culture Fund North-Holland. Thanks to: Ondernemershuis Crataegus, VORM, and Hyperion Lyceum.

Monnik, a speculative agency for future and fiction, will start with a pilot of the World Building Laboratory. In work sessions with interested parties, we will build towards shared future scenarios for a sustainable and inclusive Amsterdam. As a specific case, we will take the Sixhaven area.

The work sessions will take place on 12 and 19 September 2018 and will be closed to the public. The results will be presented during the final seminar of Public Art Amsterdam on Sunday 30 September in the Ondernemershuis Crataegus (Crataegus entrepreneur house) at the Meidoornplein. The drawings of future scenarios used in the sessions will also be displayed there from 26 to 30 September.

This project is part of Social Capital #1 (september 2018).
