Loesje


One of the things I enjoyed when I came back home last May were the Loesje posters. I found them in front of a museum we visited and alongside the road. I also used tohave Loesje calenders when living in Holland. Loesje posters are funny, thought provoking and a way of peaceful action. I found out over the years that the way for me to deal best with problems, whatever their nature is, is some form of action. Talking about it, arranging things, anything. This gives you a bit of a feeling that you are in control.

Now Loesje is in control. Loesje was "born" in Arnhem Holland  in 1983 A group 6 students spreaded posters and extended their activities outside the Dutch borders. Now Loesje is an international organisation and the posters appear in many languages and in many countries. The international main office is in Berlin, were they give workshops to brainstorm for new posters.

BTW I love the extra large photo size blogger offers at the moment.
