What is Loesje International?

Loesje is simultaneously a worldwide collective of people and a fictional character - a young girl from the Netherlands who wants to make our world a more positive, creative place. 

The key values of Loesje are: Showing solidarity, being Anti-authoritarian, being sexually free, showing Initiative, being decisive, being A-religious and being Independent.

These values are spread through posters with short, creative texts, mostly positive and funny, and at the same time critical, aiming to stimulate the viewers to see things from new perspectives, and take action in their own lives. Loesje texts are not trying to tell you what to think; instead they often invite many different interpretations.

 

Since its inception, Loesje has grown internationally and became a network of groups, currently present in 19 countries, who interact and come together at International events (such as members' weekends and summer camps) and through projects.

Loesje International is now looking for a Network Coordinator to organize International activities and develop the network.
