Signs, signs

In the "New Land Museum" in Lelystad was an exhibiton about the making of the new "Flevopolder".  People who moved from different places of the "Old Land" in the seventies to make a living there didn't find the same services they were used to in old cities and villages. Schools, shops, theaters, everything had to be started up. These t-shirts express the things  the inhabitants missed in their new Province and the prejudices others had.

I want culture!

I want to have a nice evening out with my friends.

Going on holidays to Flevoland? No thanks,

Stormwinds always blow here and always with headwinds.

And a positive one "I am happy here" and so am I already for 36 years in Almere!

  1. It is an interesting way to record part of history; it is visually attractive and appealing.

  3. Starting anew in a new place is always difficult, specially if we don't have the comforts we were used to. But I bet nowadays the people that live there love it.

  4. You know, it's healthy that people have these wants. They contribute to a better life and culture.

  5. It seems that no matter where we go, we find things we are happy about and things that we miss from the last place. But we are really happy to be settled in where we are now.

  7. While headwinds are a term occasionally used here, I don't think stormwinds are a word I've heard before.

  8. Interesting art installation. Don't think I would wear any of these shirts with sayings on them.
