Open Day at the Expatriate Archive Centre

If you’re interested in expatriate history/experience, archives, or will just happen to be in Den Haag, you should swing by the Expatriate Archive Centre for their Open Day.




Scheduled events include:

  • 10 am – Opening ceremony by Deputy Mayor Mrs Marjolein de Jong, Alderman for International Affairs
  • 12.30 – 13.30: Lunchtime concert by members of the New Dutch Academy
  • 17.00 -  17.45: Debate “What is an expatriate?” led by Professor Dr Keetie Sluyterman

When not in the midst of events, you can look at journals, photos, letters, and other ephemera through which expats have been recording and sharing their lives in the wide world. The folks who run the Archive Centre are great and very passionate. I have to work, but I hope you get the chance to swing by. The Centre will be opened at 9 am on June 9th. Be sure to get their early for the best refreshments.
