‘Think in possibilities not limitations’  is Ella Overkleeft’s credo. She is a cultural consultant with an emphasis on social and urban development. She is the co-founder of the Night-Mayor foundation in Amsterdam; an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining a dynamic nightlife while strengthening connections between the municipality, small business owners and residents to sustain Amsterdam as a creative capital.

She loves to be at the forefront of social, and cultural development in nightlife and beyond. Besides working at the Night Mayor office, she works on the progressive harm reduction campaign ‘Celebrate Safe’ a national campaign for all the festivals and clubs that support safe partying.

Next to her two main projects she is always busy with spaces and places to stimulate the creative value for the city of Amsterdam.
