Biografie
Gershwin Bonevacia  has been Amsterdam's official poet since March 2019. He likes to approach topics such as the city, education and the past with a playful philosophical approach, and is just as likely to interweave Harry Potter or Balenciaga into his poems.

As a poet and writer, Gershwin collaborates with organizations such as the Van Gogh Museum, TEDx and the Dutch libraries.
In addition, he writes a monthly poem for Het Parool. His debut collection I Bought A Bicycle was published in 2017, a revised edition was published in 2019. His new poetry collection When I Was Little, I Wasn't Afraid will be published shortly by Das Mag.
