Can you imagine? That you will die, but no one will be at your funeral? Simply because you don’t have anybody. I hope you don’t. Unfortunately, in Amsterdam this happens way too much. Luckily there are people who want to do something about this. They’ve created a ‘festival’ and literally bring out loneliness. When lonely people die the only things they leave behind are their personal belongings. These are the only things that can tell their story of loneliness. Through this way the festival makes people aware that loneliness is among us, so we can do something about it. Together. Meet Voortleven.
