The National Slavery Commemoration during Keti Koti (roughly translated: 'the chains are broken') on 1 July this year, was the starting point of the National Slavery Memorial Year in the Netherlands. The Memorial Year focuses special attention on the past of Dutch slavery and its consequences. How do they affect our lives in the here and now? In the Twente region, we also feel it as important to reflect on these consequences. We will be doing so with various activities throughout the year and will start on 28 September. Then, the Municipality of Enschede, Saxion University of Applied Sciences and the University of Twente will jointly organise a Keti Koti Table in Enschede's city hall.
Everyone is welcome to eat together, share experiences as well as jointly look ahead. So are you a student or do you work at the University of Twente or at Saxion University of Applied Sciences? Then sign up quickly! Also if you are an Enschede resident, we would like to welcome you to the Keti Koti Table.
Live English subtitels will be available. Conversations can be held in Dutch or in English.
