Speak Up started in 2017 in a cozy living room in Amsterdam-Southeast. Young, Critical Millennials came together to talk about important topics such as the national elections, a Dutch blackface tradition and the destruction of the earth. The talkshow is more about talking in safe spaces for healing within ourselves and in our communities. We are not interested in pleasing a dominant group, we are interested in improving ourselves to be free from colonial influences with the focus on creating our own vision.
Without Community Builders, there would not be a Speak Up World. We think it’s important to shine a light on those voices that we do not hear enough. On this page we show all the CB’s that have participated in the talkshow. Pictures taken by Marie-Louise Hodge.
