Netwerk

During the project, Netwerk established a partnership with an organisation called Parol, which is based in the deprived area of the city and helps people on low incomes or who have difficulty adapting to society, such as elderly people living in social housing and immigrants. Part of their work involves providing social events for the community and with Netwerk they developed regular tours of the gallery’s exhibitions. Towards the end of the project Netwerk also started to work with Babbelonië, an organisation which invites people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds to sessions where they can learn to speak Dutch through discussions around different topics. They were invited by Netwerk to an introduction on contemporary art, this was followed up with a guided tour and an opportunity to discuss and translate artists quotes.
