Mutsen voor Mensen (Hats for People) is a project I organized in 2009/2010. I collected wool and brought it to knitting clubs and elderly houses.

The wonderful people there helped me to knit and collect almost 300 hats. Every hat had a tag on it with the name of the person who knitted it.

On a very cold january day, we gave away the hats in the centre of Amsterdam to people passing by.

I wanted to show the world you can make each other happy without needing money. The only thing asked in return was to write a little thank you note for the person who knitted the hat. In the end all the people who helped knitting got a little booklet with pictures and their personal thank you cards.

Mutsen voor Mensen (Hats for People) was a social project I did in 2010. I collected wool from every basement and attic I could find. Then I brought this to knitting clubs and elderly houses all over Amsterdam, and asked them to help me knit as many hats as possible. After a while we had about 300 hats, and I wanted to give them away on the street to show people we can make each other happy without money being involved. Every hat had a little tag on it with the name of the person who knitted it, and every knitting-participant got a little booklet with pictures of the people who picked their hats. It was a very warm cold day :)
