Internship: The Prospektor
Over the past 30 years you will have found my mother sewing and listening in my parents’ shoe and clothes repair shop in Amsterdam-Noord. This is how she practices care. Sharing stories and responsibilities, the shop became our community’s haven; and my mom became the mother of many.
The shop is due to close amidst the rise of gentrification in my childhood neighborhood, and I am left wondering how this will affect our community?
