And it's just been published in Dutch! Sign up now to be notified when sales begin in mid-May 2022 by visiting https://rootsguide.org/ Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more information. We'll have a book launch (hybrid format) at Pakhuis de Zwijger on 9 June 2022.
Our printed guidebook is for people who live in the Netherlands and want to get to know their country and themselves in a new way. Taking the form of an interactive guidebook, we invite you to undertake both reflective inner and outer journeys by revisiting what you think you know about life in the Netherlands, starting on your very own doorstep.
Sharing personal stories builds powerful connections between strangers – they trigger our curiosity to explore new places and revisit well-known ones with fresh eyes. Through in-depth visual and personal stories, the guidebook welcomes you into the lives of more than 34 migrants living in the Netherlands. Drawing on their own diverse perspectives and experiences, they’ll guide you to the places that have touched and shaped them. And, along the way, you’ll get reflection questions and travel activities specially designed to shed new light on the wonder, weirdness, struggles and joy that are part of establishing roots and forging community in this country we all call home, regardless of whether we have lived here for a few months or our whole lives.
