We don’t write about trends, it-things, seasonal must-haves, wardrobe issues, losing weight, top five restaurants, marital problems or politics.
 

We write about people.

About

The Folks of Amsterdam is an independent interview magazine that shares in-depth stories of today's creatives, risk-takers and adventurous folks of Amsterdam. Besides interviews The Folks publishes video portraits and offers pop-up events throughout the city where creative people can gather to share, learn and grow. Our next mission is to publish a printed magazine.

The magazine was founded in 2016 and is made by a small, hardworking team, all working and living in Amsterdam.

Our mission is to tell stories that inspire change. We've devoted the magazine entirely to human-centered content, asking vibrant, independent folks of Amsterdam about their failures and their glories and the crossroads of their stories. 

The Folks of Amsterdam is ad-free and comes with no hidden subscriptions.
