Mama Agatha has been featured on Polish cycling portal aleszprycha.pl! For those of you with command of the Polish language, check out the nice article by Agnieszka Gruszczynska.
Mama Agatha’s summer course is in its 5th week. Her students – migrant women from India, Pakistan, China, Ghana, Suriname and elsewhere – can now cycle without anyone balancing them. Next week, they move from the gym onto the parking lot… Just a few more weeks before they hit the colorful streets of Southeast Amsterdam!
Aoife Glass, writer and editor at Total Women’s Cycling recently wrote a fantastic article called The Uplifting Story of Mama Agatha. A big thank you from the Mama Agatha team!

We are thrilled to announce that Mama Agatha has received production support from the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts. The Amsterdam Fund for the Arts supports projects of artistic excellence that make a significant contribution to the cultural life of the city. Both the characters in Mama Agatha and the filmmaking team come from all corners of the world, and all of them found a home in Amsterdam. As an international project that is at the same time deeply rooted in the city’s diversity and cycling culture, we are very honored by the fund’s trust in the project.
At the beginning of July, together with a new group of students in Mama Agatha’s class, we will begin filming Mama Agatha.
