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. Join this informal dinner where you get the chance to meet (new) Amsterdammers. This edition there is special attention for the initiatives and there will be a chance to find out what they are doing to help newcomers.

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.

Join this dinner and meet the initiatives

We offer this dinner and try to connect as many locals and newcomers as possible. This edition we also invite initiatives to pitch their project, so people who are interested can join their table.

Do you have a initiative with or for newcomers? Share it during this evening and get the chance to enrich your initiative! Subscription is mandatory and easily done when subscribing for this event. Hit the yellow button in the upper right corner.

Good to know

  • Dinner is offered for free, but to make sure the newcomers 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.
