Flyer Postjesbuurt – Info in English

We are working on a flyer with the various initiatives in the Postjesbuurt. When it’s done you’ll find it here. The links and some translated text from the flyer are already here:

Buurtteam de Baarsjes
For all your questions about: care, housing, health, income, financial issues, meeting people, and safety.

Combiwel Buurtwerk
The Neighborhood Workers will help you with your plan for the neighbourhood. They know the neighborhood and know the way to get things done.

Talk about your neighbourhood with other residents and the municipality.

Buurtkamer Corantijn
Meet your neighbours during the Buurtborrel (drinks), the Walk-in or other activities. Or rent space for a party or meeting.

Stadsdorp Postjesbuurt
Participate in activities such as cooking and eating together, going to the movies or the book club.

Buurtkamer Corantijn also speaks English!

You want to participate in the neighbourhood but don’t speak Dutch (yet)? On this page you will find activities that are especially suitable for people who do not speak Dutch. But if you can understand a little Dutch other activities like Stoelyoga or the weekly Walk-In could also be nice for you. Most activities in the Buurtkamer are (almost) free. Do you have a question? Mail to info@buurtkamercorantijn.nl.

Between September 28 and October 31, 2023, West Verbindt! connects people all over Amsterdam West. Below the activities in the Postjesbuurt (also called West-Indische buurt) that are especially suitable for people who do not speak Dutch:

Neighbourhood drinks (‘Buurtborrel’) – Language no problem! – Thursdays September 28 and October 26, 2023  between 17:30 and 20:00
You like to have a drink with your neighbours but feel insecure about speaking Dutch? During our monthly ‘Buurtborrel’ we will ensure that internationals like you are extra welcome. We will speak English and Dutch and maybe other languages!

Guided Tour through our neighbourhood in English – Saturday, October 14, 2023 at 10:00
Get to know our neighbourhood during a walk with the Buurtgids (Neighbourhood Guide). Language: Dutch with English translation. Please reserve your free place via info@buurtkamercorantijn.nl.

Buurtpuzzeltocht – Puzzle Tour – Language no problem! – Sunday October 22, 2023 at 13:00
In a multi-language (English, Dutch, German?) puzzle tour (about an hour of leisurely walk) you will learn all kinds of interesting facts about our neighbourhood (called the West-Indische Buurt or Postjesbuurt). Please reserve your free place via info@buurtkamercorantijn.nl.

Do you want to organize an activity for Internationals yourself? Check possibilities via info@buurtkamercorantijn.nl. For free activities that are open to neighbours, in most cases you can use the Buurtkamer without paying rent.

Organizing a private party or meeting is also possible, but then you will have to pay rent. More info (in Dutch) here.

Buurtkamer Corantijn is located at the Corantijnstraat 25, on the corner with the van Walbeeckstraat.
