Next week I will participate in a gathering hosted by OCAN, focused on diversity, inclusivity and the positioning of people of African descent in Den Haag. My presentation will offer a discussion on the role of (racist) stereotypes in determining who can belong to a city and will also investigate how the distinction between “expats” and “immigrants” contributes to white washing Den Haag’s international image and reputation. Want to attend this event? Find more information via the official OCAN invitation below. Hope to see you there! ❤
You are very welcome to attend the working conference “Heart for an Inclusive Den Haag” on Wednesday 17th April. This “wake-up” conference is for everyone who lives or works in The Hague and who supports this city with its 180 nationalities. The main goals of the working conference are:
increase the dialogue on inclusion, equal treatment and anti-discrimination and anti-racism at neighbourhood level;
to strengthen the resilience of the target group (s) to combat exclusion;
proposals for improvement / solutions to combat racism / discrimination within institutions.
