The StreetsmArt location on the Molukkenstraat is currently being extensive with the powerful artwork "YOU" by the talented artist Petra Sluijters.
After her successful exhibition I'M BLUE, this emotional painting is now part of the collection of StreetsmArt. It highlights the theme of depression and the feeling of darkness, and proves to be ideally suited for the target group of vulnerable young people between the ages of 16 and 27 years. The initiative, supported by the Gemeente Amsterdam, brings art and mental health together. “YOU” acts as a visual voice for those struggling with their inner demons. In the homely atmosphere of StreetsmArt, young people not only receive accessible support, but also the opportunity to experience art that reflects their own experiences.
The artwork "YOU" is a visual eye-catcher, with a powerful symbol of hope and resilience for those who visit StreetsmArt. This collaboration between art and mental health promises to create an inspiring environment where young people can discover their own strength, supported by the artistic expression of Petra Sluijters.

"YOU" seen through the app Artivive. Petra Sluijters works with interactive video art. Viewers have to use their phones to see this video art. That appeals even more to young people.
