Festival

On World Refugee Day, 20 June 2024, we invite you to join us for the Rooted Festival, brought to you by Rooted, UNHCR – the UN Refugee Agency, Cinetree, and De Hoorneboeg. Immerse yourself in nature at a central location in the Netherlands, where 300 individuals will gather to share stories and learn about their roots, identities, and building a collective home. This festival provides a space for those directly experiencing the journey of migration and seeking to connect with others who understand this unique path. It will be a day filled with engaging workshops, inspiring speakers, short films, thought-provoking panel discussions, and music. We also warmly invite professionals in the refugee and migration sector to join us in exploring the importance of ‘rooting’ as part of the integration process in the Netherlands.
Don’t miss out – together we stand Rooted!

“Rooted was like coming back home,
the in-between home, in between
souls, faces, and soil. It reassured me
of the beauty of being in-between,
how rich and diverse it is, and how
many of us feel the same.”
