Let's do Goods socks are designed by artists with lived experience in the field of homelessness, addiction or psychiatry. They are also called outsider artists. Let's do Goods gives them a stage for their story and work on their socks.
On top of this, a pair of socks is donated to peoples in need for every pair of socks sold, in collaboration with The Salvation Army, Quiet, Food Banks and local partners.
Discover the artist Niek:
Niek is the artist of this Breda sock. Niek's life is like a story from a movie. He has been homeless for seventeen years of his life. Sleeping under a bridge for years, living in a forest and walking through our country. Loneliness and little faith in a 'good' future made him prefer to be homeless. The thought that many sometimes have to completely disappear from the radar, that thought has given Niek hands and feet. He did not want to be helped by one of the many aid organizations in the Netherlands. Being a burden to as few people as possible and worrying a lot about his life kept him going.
Art has been a constant in his life. He himself thinks that art makes him less daydreaming. For example, by finding out how a portrait, an animal or a landscape works. Which style and which theme suits it? These questions make his environment more tangible. As a homeless person you are often avoided and few people seek genuine connection. Art was always nearby and helped him to “talk” about life and his feelings.
For Let's do Goods, Niek made a painting of the streets where he walked endlessly, unobtrusively and anonymously.
