Perspectives|Lost in Translation: Communication & Connection - Thursday 6 May
How does our ability to communicate with others affect our ability to connect with others? And what factors affect our ability to communicate? In an international and diverse city like Utrecht, how do we connect with those who communicate differently from us?
If you’ve ever found yourself “lost in translation,” join De Voorkamer community on Thursday 6 May for our latest Perspectives program, a safe and inclusive space to listen, share experiences, and engage with each other.
How important is cultural context in truly understanding and using language? What happens to our identity when we communicate in another language? How do natives and newcomers share responsibility for bridging language and cultural divides?
In exploring these questions and others together, we can learn from each other about how to connect more meaningfully despite language and cultural differences, and share practical tips about how to thrive within Dutch culture.
The primary language of the event will be English but there will also be interaction support in Arabic, Dutch & Turkish!
