While working on our project Artividuals – the living artworks of Amsterdam we continuously meet the most interesting characters that enrich the streets of Amsterdam. We will keep you posted on the project on our blog

One of the Artividuals we’ve met is Sjak. After going through a rough patch himself, nowadays Sjak helps out wherever he can. Whether it’s helping out at the homeless shelter ‘HVO Querido’, or playing with ‘Roofless’ (a band of homeless musicians); with his red pilotcap he has sort of become the figurehead of the band.

I help because just like my big inspiration Fabiola, I believe that anyone who can should help. So that’s what I’m doing now; after all that I have been through, I am creating places where I can develop myself, and others.”
