Loesje Posters in the City Centre of Arnhem
You might have seen these posters in the city center of Arnhem. But what are they? And who writes them? Well, every person like you and I can write to them.
It is a group of people who started in Arnhem and they try to make the world a little better. They think that everybody can change the world. Not by going into politics or by becoming a manager, but just by spreading the word.
The cult figure arose in 1983 by writing and spreading critical and humoristic posters. It writes the quotes with local groups, in workshops, and with people online.
The topics are about current issues in the country or world. Think of climate change, politics, Valentine’s day, school, digitalization, seasons, special days and so on.
