"NEW FACES SUPPORTS YOUR CULTURAL INSTITUTION TO BECOME MORE INCLUSIVE AND ACCESSIBLE TOWARDS NEWCOMERS"
What is New Faces
‘New Faces’ involves newcomers with a refugee background as volunteers at three major Dutch festivals: : Oerol, Welcome to the Village en Into the Great Wide Open. You may know that, in addition to their three half-day integration-course, many newcomers have little chance of participating, staying active and increasing their network. Building a new network is for many a key to getting a place in society and gaining work experience is essential to get paid work. That is why we from Iepen Up (Leeuwarden-Fryslan Cultural Capital 2018) work with Innofest and five festivals in the Netherlands. Because the Netherlands is a festival country, a nice place to gain work experience and make new friends.
