During this summer theater company Oostpool performes ‘Hollandsch Glorie’, a fabulous, critical satire about Dutch History and the need for stories that fit our current multi-ethnic society. Students of FAM joined Oostpool by connecting their personal stories and experiences to piece during special openings before the Thursday night performances.

But what does such a theater piece bring about? Does its message last after the curtains are closed and all actors go back home? And how do students at VU continue their conversation on diversity within the academic setting?
How do we shape our personal engagement in the ruth of our daily and academic lives? Can change be influenced by art and talks about ideals and dreams of inclusiveness? Or is change a process that we simply cannot influence?

So come on out and join us for this talk on ideals, activism and the longing for change. Let’s have a heartfelt conversation on the challenges of trying to make this world a more equal place
This Courageous Conversation in organized by VU debate center 3D and FAM, the student association that aims to create a diverse and inclusive student community. Members of the theater company Oostpool will be joining us during this conversation.

Location: 3D on campus
