All the best & see you tomorrow hopefully!
*1. Radboud Public Roundtable Discussion:*
‘Postcolonial Europe’ from our borderlands
The Departments of Geography, and Anthropology and Development Studies at
Radboud Universiteit cordially invite you to a jointly-sponsored roundtable
discussion on the theme ‘Postcolonial Europe’, a public event capping a
2-day workshop involving a distinguished group of international scholars in
dialogue with Radboud University faculty, students and community activists
spanning our shared Dutch/German borderland (Nijmegen/Kleve).
Inspired by a common need to re-think the European project within the
framework of the complex legacies of European colonial expansion as well as
Europe’s continued post-colonial entanglements with the outside world,
participants at this session will be asked to reflect on the workshop’s key
concerns and thereby open a dialogue with the wider academic-activist
community on what ‘Postcolonial Europe’ might achieve for our research,
teaching, university life and broader political engagements, in The
Netherlands and beyond.

*2. **justParty // justPeople for Solidarity*
Jamsession & Party
Heeeey party people,
there is a celebration going on the 11th of March!
So come over bring ur smile, good vibes, love and ideas.
We’ll have a jamsession, some DJ’s, and maybe some acts, so feel welcome to
join us. We also hope to play with artists and musicians from Heumensoord.
URGENT: justPeople is looking into quick and alternative housing for our
friends currently living in Heumensoord. For those who have or will shortly
receive their 5-year residence permit, we would like to provide the
opportunity to stay in Nijmegen. For this we are looking for people with
rooms, houses, alternatives, anything that would provide a decent living.
Since COA promises an extra budget (€400) for statusholders living outside
any camp or asylum center, the form of housing does not have to be free,
just lets see within a student’s budget. See COA’s website ‘logeerregeling’
or ‘zelfzorgarrangement’ for more information, or contact us.
The entrance is free for anyone, and we’ll have a donation for solidarity
initiatives with and for refugees, such as the Women’s Meeting (
Pro Activa (http://en.proactivaopenarms.org/) and of course we are also
supporting the lovely Onderboek.
So come over for a night with music, good vibes and great people.
Doors will be open at 21:00
21:00 – ? Jamsession & plays
00:30 – ? DJ’s (Mad Max & Professor Kai, Blau, Swingmar, …)
