Photography connects people, generations and cultures. Four photographers from Leeuwarden dive into the Heechterp-Schieringen district with their camera. Dineke Kaal, Elske Riemersma, Menno de Boer and Ton Groot Haar photograph local residents, tell their stories and give courses in which the residents themselves visualize the neighborhood. All photos can be seen at a large outdoor exhibition in the neighborhood and in the Historical Center Leeuwarden.

Welcome to Heechterp is a social photograph project that strengthens involvement and social cohesion in the neighborhood and combats loneliness. All three-storey flats in the Leeuwarder district will make way for new construction in the next ten years. This intervention has a huge impact on the residents. This was the reason for the photo project 'Welcome to Heechterp' for four photographers from Fotocollectief Leeuwarden. Who lives in the neighbourhood? What are their dreams and stories?

Meetings are central: between photographers and local residents, children and the elderly, neighbours, neighbors and people from different cultures. In the month of June there are activities every weekend in the community center during a festival month around the project.

Welcome to Heechterp is part of Over de Drempel: a program of the municipality of Leeuwarden and Arcadia in which cultural artists and social actions bring people together and get to work with the theme of loneliness.
