We also bring laughter and imagination to asylum centres in the Netherlands. Even though the living circumstances here are slightly better, the wait is long and there’s a lot of tension.
We focus on the centres in the Netherlands where the distress amongst children is the highest, and where the distraction is the least. In these centres we arrange workshops, show or longer lasting projectweeks.
We focus our projects on children that are stuck in refugee camps next to the European borders. Kids whose traumas are still fresh and are in lack of perspective for their futures. In the camps they grow up in there’s a chronical lack of play, hope, wonder and imagination.
And, without an inner imagination of an alternative future, there’s no place to go. Imagination is a necessity in the lives of these children.
