I know, as a photo this is pretty average, but I do like the story behind it…
As in any large city with an immigrant population, Amsterdam faces the problem of balancing tolerant support for multiculturalism with a desire to have newcomers integrate and adopt Dutch culture.
A cluster of satellite dishes beaming TV programs from Turkey or Morocco into Amsterdam has become a sign of a Muslim ghetto, where people cling to their old culture, learning only basic Dutch and resisting the Hollandization process.
A ‘schoteltjesbuurt’ or ‘dish district’ is sneered at by many.
Then someone had the bright idea of turning the dishes in this street into a community art gallery.
