In this Lab, we will explore the past and current impact of the Dutch and Belgian colonisation of Surinam, the Congo and Indonesia. What were and are the effects, both for the colonised, and for the colonisers. We will look at the collective trauma effects that are still present today and what we can do to move towards integration.


We will be exploring

Participants are asked to commit to

We invite you to explore some history of these colonial backgrounds. Research is also done inside of yourself, so we invite you to explore that through regular meditation and contemplation and other reflective practices of your own. We ask you to commit to an active participation in the group conversation and to explore your daily routines and how they relate to the aftermath of the collective trauma we are researching.
