What do you do when you're don't have a home anymore? Klaas Burger initiated #HUISJE #BOOMPJE; a poster campaign, guided tours and a guide about the local street life. The idea for #HUISJE #BOOMPJE grew at the Street Coucil: a consultation table of homeless people who meet every Wednesday morning in the Anna House. The Street Council is looking for ways to break the existing prejudices about homelessness. Because everyone can lose his house!
