Pakhuis de Zwijger is an accessible, independent, and safe public meeting place for everyone. A contemporary 'talking house' with a strong online environment that has opted for dialogue as a form of conversation. A place where we jointly formulate ambitions and present different opinions and insights in order to arrive at creative solutions for the urgent and complex social issues of our time. Where we bring artists and designers together with scientists, policymakers, practitioners, and citizens in all their diversity. Where together we visualize the city and metropolitan region of tomorrow, test research results against everyday practice, and present technological and social innovation as alternatives to current policy and actual reality.
