Hannekes Boom, our favourite hang-out since Queen’s Day, is hosting a small event for charity this Saturday. The sympathetic Amsterdam based organisation Favela Painting, who paint Brazil’s infamous Favelas in bright colours to inspire the people and attract to attention to their problems, is the beneficiary of the day. Twenty picnic tables will be painted by artists from all corners of Amsterdam. The tables will spend all summer on Hannekes terrace to tell Favela Painting’s story, after which they will be auctioned off to support the foundation. Go support!
