Griftpark Dialogues: Feeling at home

Thu 10 June 2021, 19:30 - 21:30

In the second episode of the Griftpark dialogue series, we mark World Refugee Day with a dialogue about “feeling at home”.  We are joined by writer and social entrepreneur, Saskia Harkema, who will talk about her latest book, “Alles is terloops”, an account of her work with refugees and her own quest to feel at home . We hope to meet under the trees in the Griftpark, but if this is not possible, we will meet on Zoom. Everyone is welcome! Share your experiences, listen to those of others and imagine the future together. Registration is mandatory.

Feeling at home

In the second episode of the 2021 Griftpark dialogues, we will be inspired by the stories of Saskia Harkema. Her latest book, Alles is terloops, deals with a recurring question: Who are you if you don’t grow up where you were born, if you keep leaving? Where are you from and where is your home? In this dialogue, we ask ourselves the same questions: Where do you call home? What makes a place feel like home and how can you create this feeling yourself? How does this feeling change with time? What does it mean to have a home? How do you envision a home for yourself and others in the future? How does this look different to now and how can you bring it closer?

Summer Griftpark Dialogues

We hope to be able to continue the familiar dialogues under the trees in the Griftpark this summer! On Thursday evenings we will meet with old, young and new under the trees, or online via Zoom if this is not possible. Everyone is welcome! Share your experiences and ideas for the future, warm to each other’s stories and explore what you want and can do, yourself and with others. Register for the whole series:

22nd April – Warmth

10th June – Home

8th July – Mother Earth

12th August – New green life

9th September – Working together, worthwhile

What is a dialogue?

Utrecht in DialoogA dialogue is an open conversation about experiences, dreams and possibilities. In a dialogue you really enter into a conversation with each other and you meet people you do not normally meet. Everyone is invited to share his/her story and everyone is heard. A dialogue contributes to mutual understanding, connection and insight.

Since the corona crisis, we have been talking online so that everyone can participate at a safe distance. We use Zoom for the online conversations. You can sign up for a dialogue via the red button at the top of the page. You will then receive an email with a login link and password that will give you access to the Zoom room where the dialogue takes place.
