“Who is afraid of Zwarte Piet. Prudence and outspokenness in Dutch Diversity”

19 November 2015, 7.00 p.m.

Erasmus Pavilion, Rotterdam
The event will be in English. It is free and open to the public, but please sign up here.
More info here.

Please note that this is part of an ECREA conference we are organizing on media, diversity and belonging in Europe.

The debate will be followed by the launch of a bilingual magazine that features, amongst others, alternative Sint & Piet celebrations across the Netherlands, a historical inquiry into these characters, and fascinating interviews with celebrities. The magazine is the result of the collaborative work between various ESHCC researchers—Janelle Ward, Alex van Stipriaan, Jiska Engelbert, Jacco van Sterkenburg, Isabel Awad and MA student Samir  Azrioual—and a group of independent design and media professionals from Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
