With recent racist remarks in the political arena the counter voice from Dutch society proved to be loud.
Although the interest from the mainstream media for race topics and issues are evident, ‘race’ still remains a difficult subject in The Netherlands. 2103 Festival is a grassroots manifest against discrimination of all sorts. Together with a broad variety of young and creative ‘change agents’ 2103 Festival speak and works with people, goes in-depth instead of merely scratching surfaces.
2103 Festival is to celebrate our enormous cultural diversity, but is also not afraid to ask questions, go in-depth and to break with outdated social constructs. This one-day festival brings different communities from The Hague together.
2103 Festival is multi-disciplinary with debate, installation, art, comedy, spoken-word, photography, live music en more. An eclectic group of artists and modern ‘change agents’ are invited to join and work with 2103 Festival in a collaborative spirit.
