Who is Loesje?

Loesje is an idealistic organisation which aims for a creative society based on own initiative and active citizenship. The objective is to exchange ideas and opinions, to stimulate people to create their own ideas. Loesje mainly uses posters with short but strong texts (one-liners), which shine a different light on particular subjects. Our main activity is to create such posters, together with our members, as well as with people from other organisations. The posters are spread on the Internet, around the streets, in community centres, schools etc. The aims of the organisation are to spread black and white posters to colour life and to create possibilities, in which participants of Loesje activities can start and support progressive social initiatives.

The project will start on the 1st of September 2020 and will last until the 31st of August 2021. And it will be a great experience. At our office you will be working together with Lonneke, Luder, Esther, Maarten, Rianne and Ralph and of course many of the other active people of Loesje Netherlands and Loesje International.

Accommodation will be arranged. You will get money for food and pocket money and a language course. The atmosphere at the office is informal, fun, busy but with is a lot of space to come up with new, own ideas. Support is present during the whole year yet we encourage self-initiative. An active attitude is essential in the work we do.


Tasks you can do:

  • – Contact with international Loesje groups.
  • – (Co)-organizing events like Summer camp, Congress, writing sessions.
  • – Participating in international writing workshops
  • – Translating international texts in your own language
  • – Lay-out posters
  • – Freedom to think of and carry out own creative plans and initiatives.
  • – Helping with the development of the website homepage and – updating and innovating it

In all tasks will be a balance between working together and working independently.

When you speak Dutch there will also be other possibilities as tasks, a.o. textwriting with local

Loesje-groups, giving workshops to external organisations in The Netherlands.

You can apply now but first read the regulations and selection criteria. If you have questions just ask us, no problem. One advice in case you know the people of the office, what you write to us is very important and not what you believe that we know of you. It’s better to write more than to give too less information.

Selection Criteria:

– A strong motivation clearly described what you want to do

– CV and Creative Vitae (what are your creative skills?)

– A good level of speaking and understanding English

– Able to work independent and develop own ideas

– We should believe you will fit in our team

Because of the strict Dutch immigration policy and bureaucracy, we unfortunately only host volunteer from inside the European Union.
