This conference seeks to bring together old and new narratives. It is looking for ways that could counteract the current Eurosceptic and anti-EU rhetoric and show a way forward to recover the vision of a peaceful and united Europe. Our founder and director Laura M. Pana will share the results of the research she conducted in 2016 in the Netherlands about how to co-create new spaces of encounter where new ways of communication that challenge official narratives can emerge in times of European crisis. Join us!

Diverse City Co Design Workshop, The Hague

Diverse City Co Design Workshop, The Hague

Diversity is all around us in public space. However, this is often not reflected in our (future) professional surroundings. How to close the gap? How to diversify one’s own professional surroundings? Migrationlab in collaboration with European Cultural Foundation and The Hague University of Applied Sciences invited students, young professionals, local cultural practitioners and policy makers to work together on concrete proposals and an action plan, taking inspiration from the Laakkwartier neighbourhood after exploring the area with local guides.

The "Diverse City" Co-Design Workshop is a follow up event of the Peace through Culture, a citizens dialogue held in May at the Peace Palace in The Hague, which brought together different stakeholders who discussed the vital role that culture plays in shaping tomorrow’s societies and in building more cohesive and diverse communities.

Welcome To The Living Room Co-Design Workshop Rotterdam

Don't be a spectator, be a co-creator!

Join us in the creation of a safe space of encounter, open to everyone, where migrants, refugees and Dutch locals get to know each other, share stories in artistic forms, challenge stereotypes and befriend! We will explore how to create together a public living room through 4 creative activities (location, design, storytelling and the importance of creating such a space of encounter), that enable you to freely share your ideas and bring solutions to migration matters in a light, playful yet relevant way. In order to participate in the workshop you don't need to prepare anything and you don't need special skills. The Migrationlab Team will guide you all the way through.
