What is Pages Bookstore Café?
After he left Syria, Samer Al-Kadri opened the original Pages Bookstore Café in Istanbul. It has become a city fixture for artists, musicians, poets and storytellers of all backgrounds, and helped to bring Syrian refugees out of their isolation. Pages popped up at the Prince Claus Fund Gallery to create a space in Amsterdam open to everyone. As the motto goes: "Pages, it's your home."

Pages Bookstore Café

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.”
