An international, sustainable and circular village on two hectares of land in Oosterwold (Almere), with three residential buildings and a community building with restaurant. A place where people can visit, but also live, work and, above all, develop themselves.
Our initiatives are not isolated, because from the experiences of Inspiratie-Inc we are now working hard on an ecosystem of cooperatively connected organizations. Within this system, refugees and other new Dutch people, with their unique qualities, are able to connect more quickly with the Dutch economy and society, and respond faster to what is needed.
A wide range of creative activities, such as specific weekly courses in the fields of visual art, music and theatre, as well as more project-based activities where we work together on a larger project (community art). There is also room for individual work (with guidance if needed).
Cooking and eating together; this stems from the need of participants who indicate that they wish (to learn) to cook new dishes within their limited budget.
Activities centered around socialization and rebuilding lives: working on rehabilitation supports the participant’s recovery. We work on this by being here for our participants and focusing on discovering, specifying and strengthening their talents and possibilities in the environment.
In this way we support active independence in society.
