About Emma Lesuis

Emma Lesuis tells stories through various formats: the written word, visuals, on stage and documentary film. She has written for The Correspondent, culture magazine Rekto:Verso and the Standaard. Earlier this year, Emma’s live documentary Aardappelbloed (Potato Blood) was listed on our programme: a unique and confrontational portrait of her ancestors, with an additional focus on her enslaved Surinamese great-great-grandmother.

Emma will continue to write and present. She is currently hosting the brand-new podcast Studio Circulair about circular initiatives in Rotterdam and planning Aardappelbloed’s tour.

In Art We Trust

We Are Public will keep investing in arts and culture. Now more than ever! That is why our membership will work a little differently for the time being:

✔️ Every month our curators will select 15 makers
✔️ Our main focus will be on independent makers, who have been hit hard by the current circumstances. Makers we think are brilliant and want to enable to keep working. Makers who we want to list in our programme again when the time comes.
✔️ As a member you are able to heart makers on our website to express your support.
This month we will distribute € 35.000 between 15 makers.

Join us. We need your art-loving heart!
