Pages Bookstore Café
~ The Netherlands
Pages Bookstore Café in Amsterdam is the home for music, arts, and literature. It is the place where you can discover a new book, stop by for a show, join an Open Mic or organise your own event.
Samer Al-Kadri created the original Pages Bookstore Café in Istanbul as a meeting place and a space for spontaneous events, where locals and displaced Syrians alike could meet and enjoy literature, music, performance and art. Now it hopes to foster understanding between Dutch citizens, Syrian refugees, and everyone who stops by. Its motto: “Pages, it’s your home.”
