Myrthe van Gestel

Myrthe joined Fairspace in 2022 in the role of programme officer. She is in charge of our anti-street harassment programme, for which she manages projects in different cities across the Netherlands. In this capacity she works with education institutions, student associations, youth workers and policymakers. In her free time, Myrthe reads and writes a lot, and she is a fanatic Ashtanga yogi.

Fairspace’ s vision is for a society in which everyone in the Netherlands, regardless of sex, race, gender or gender expression, feels safe moving through public spaces. Whether through transforming experiences on our streets, in bars and nightclubs, in schools or in the workplace, we tailor our services to the needs of our partners. Our work focuses on three impact areas: Education, Co-creation and Policy advice.
