Amsterdam has welcomed many new residents over the last couple of years. 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 16th edition of our informal Eat to Meet dinner where you get the chance to meet (new) Amsterdammers. We would like to give special attention to invite LHBTQ+ newcomers. No matter what gender you are or what sexual preference you have: everyone is welcome to join The Rainbow Dinner.
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.
