This event aims to unify self-identified racialized scholars throughout the Netherlands, fostering connections between networks, initiatives, groups, and individuals. This includes students, academic staff, non-academic staff, lecturers, PhD researchers, and postdoctoral researchers, who self-identify as having been excluded because of their skin color, religion, ethnicity, ability, and migration status (among other markers that intersect).

The event will be a casual meet-and-greet designed to cultivate a relaxed environment, encouraging open and meaningful exchanges. Highlighting the afternoon is a creative interactive activity from 16:30 to 17:30. The agenda is intentionally open to promote a collaborative atmosphere where ideas can flow freely—enjoy engaging conversations over complimentary drinks and snacks, all while building a vibrant community. More details will be available following registration.

Attending this event is a chance to explore and connect, not a commitment to join the collective. If you're unable to make it but wish to be part of the collective, review their Grounding Principles and fill out the form available here.

The event will mainly be held in English, but both Dutch and English will be used in order to accomodate participants. Please state which language(s) you are comfortable with in the comments section of the registration form.
