I photographed these signs at the start of our street, just two of many. Its about “Opzoomeren”. What is it? According to the Opzoomeren website: “Opzoomeren (Zooming up) is ensuring good contact with your neighbors and together creating a pleasant street to live in. Street activities are a good way to get that done. In addition to decorating or redecorating the street together, a street party, barbecue or game day can also be a way for children to zoom in on the street.” The neighbourhood received these signs as a kind of medal for the activities they did with the help of the Opzoomeren foundation. The foundation started their activities in 1994 and are still going strong!
