Welcome to The Living Room, The Hague

  • Humanity House 8 Prinsegracht Den Haag, ZH, 2512 GA Netherlands (map)

For an afternoon, the Humanity House terrace will be transformed to the Migrationlab Public Living Room, co-created by migrants, refugees and Dutch locals!

We will find out how an 11 year old girl experience migration; what’s the journey of a Syrian refugee and what perspectives Dutch students have on the current migration challenges. What’s our relationship with languages during our migration journey and how does migration from Europe to Africa shape our identity. Four migrants, refugees, visitors and Dutch locals will share their stories and reflections and invite you to contribute to an authentic discussion about who we are, where we come from, and how we can peacefully live together with our similarities and differences sharing the same space.

Besides stories, we will also share food. And we invite you to bring along a dish that represents your culture. Live Music by Caffeine Ducth band and a jam session accompany us, so feel free to bring along a music instrument and join the fun. During our programme it's also possible to visit the exhibition The Asylum Search Engine, that takes you into the world of asylum in the Netherlands by 41 visual artists and photographers

This encounter follows the collective work of 20 migrants, refugees and locals during the Welcome To The Living Room Co-Design Workshop at the Leiden University College in The Hague, earlier this year. 

The event is organized by Migrationlab in cooperation with Humanity House. This year, the „Welcome to The Living Room“ encounters in The Netherlands are enabled by the European Cultural Foundation through the Idea Camp R&D Grant. Our next Migrationlab Public Living Room takes place in Rotterdam this fall.
