Grote zaal

This year Amsterdam will welcome many new residents. People who fled their country and who have found a safe shelter in our city. These newcomers will have to find their place in our society and we are keen to help them.

All seats are reserved. RSVP is not possible anymore.

Food connects

The newcomers in our country bring all kinds of talents, knowledge and skills. The wish and the skills to build a new life are often there, but what’s often missing is a network. This is where the locals come in; they have the opportunity to enrich and share their network on this evening.


We offer this dinner and try to connect as many Amsterdammers as possible to newcomers. Would you like to meet other (new) Amsterdammers? Hit the yellow button in the upper right corner of this page and register!

Show your talent

Because we count on many talented people, we would like to give the newcomers the opportunity to show their work. Take your instrument with you and play a song, talk about your initiative or show your pictures on the screen. Please let us know how you would like to show your talent by sending an email to Simone.

Good to know

  • Dinner is offered for free, but to make sure the new artists are able to join this event as well, we would like to collect donations to cover their travel expenses. Bring a 5 euro bill and donate if you like.
  • We strive to an equal participation of locals and new Amsterdammers. If you subscribe, you will receive a final confirmation on Wednesday the 16th of March. If you’re not selected, do not despair. We organize this event on a monthly basis, so you will be sure of a seat at our dinner table next time.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments on this evening, please leave a message down below or send an email to Simone.
