The conference took place within the framework of the European Cultural Foundation Princess Margriet Award for Culture on 9 May (Europe Day). The aim of the citizens’ dialogue was to catalyse citizens' initiatives by providing a platform for co-working in order to gain new insights into how to build more cohesive communities. It engaged an international and intergenerational audience from local cultural practitioners, students and young people of diverse backgrounds to high level policy-makers and entrepreneurs.
During the conference, our founder and director Laura M. Pana facilitated the roundtable discussion touching the topics of inclusiveness, citizens' engagement and media's role. In preparation for the Peace through Culture, a citizen's dialogue conference, Migrationlab organized and facilitated a Co-Design Workshop and Welcome to the Living Room experience for 50 young people of The Hague University of Applied Sciences and the Migrationlab Network.
