Zooming in: AiR connections

Now times are changing and it is more complicated to come together, we like to take this opportunity to connect with colleagues from afar online. AiR Platform NL proposes a series of online meetings to learn what is happening in other regions in the world, to share best practices and to imagine possible futures together.

AiR connections #1 will focus on care, and the impact of the pandemic on AiR programs in Japan. We will zoom into the adventures of Jatiwangi art Factory in Indonesia and reflect together with Hotel Mariakapel in the Netherlands about the notion of care in times of crisis.

Join us!

Tuesday November 3, 12.00 – 13.15 hrs. Amsterdam CET
