10th Welkom Hier festival 1 July in Dordrecht
Local solidarity for and with refugees
On Saturday, July 1, we will host the 10th Welkom Hier festival for local solidarity for and with refugees. After The Hague, Delft, Amersfoort, Leidschendam-Voorburg, Maastricht and Haarlem this time we are in Dordrecht. From 13:00 to 15:00, about 20 organizations and initiatives present themselves in Library AanZet and from 15:00 to 17:00 there is a divers stage programme in Bonfire. Welcome Here, we do together!
Welkom Hier stands for the power of diversity and local solidarity. With the Welkom Hier festivals we bring together residents, refugees and organisations. Thus creating a Welkom Hier network which connects and supports hundreds of local initiatives and volunteers in the Netherlands.
