Written by Beyda and Ayman:

Where do you feel at home? Stories of Belonging is an exhibition and public programme developed at de Appel, with studens of the Comenius Lyceum. Now it is travelling to the Van Deysselbuurt! The Stories of Belonging-team consists of Ayman, Beyda, Donovan, Hajar, Oumaima, Safae and Yahya. Together we organize activities for this neighbourhood about feeling at home. We do this with the help of our own experiences, and by observing the world around us. There are many different kinds of people, cultures and a lot of ways of feeling at home. We want to stimulate all these feelings during our activities, and we will serve food and drinks that make you feel at home.
