Amsterdam Talks: How Welcoming is our City?

Featured image

Join us as we explore ourselves as Amsterdammers and break-down this culture we have of expats vs. locals. We know Amsterdam is a city with freedom at it's heart, but how welcoming is it for our citizens?

Is an expat a local, and how do we bring about this kind of connection? How do our citizens and neighbours make each other feel? And when do we fully integrate into this city, as one of the Dutchies?

We want to hear how you experience Amsterdam culture: what do you think, and what do you do to welcome your circle and new people into the city? Share your thoughts with us in our fishbowl discussion to end off the night!

16th of October, 2019. Doors open at 18.30.
