All around us we see actions that explore and create the conditions for resident and migrant communities to co-exist. Residents are working together with migrant families, expat workers, asylum seekers and international students to create new platforms of co-production, co-living and co-learning.
Located in the center of Eindhoven, De Huiskamer is a center for information, guidance, education and culture for newcomers in the city. During Dutch Design Week it hosts projects, activities, a restaurant and a shop with the theme of making a second chance. Three distinctive creative projects (visual, textile and photo-stories) demonstrate how they are working together with local designers in different ways. In addition, Refu-bikes presents a future of creating special bicycles from scrap parts. Uit de Buurtfabriek is showing the furniture making course they co-design for their new volunteers. And Buro Kato is sharing their participatory approach to integration within neighbourhoods in Eindhoven.
