An inspiring event about peace and hope. 

On the International Day of Peace, September 21, we are joining forces together Zuiderparktheater, Participatiekeuken een Haags Verhaal for the official start of Just Peace Month 2022 when we will be hosting a storytelling dinner for 150 guests in the open air. The theme of this year’s Just Peace Month is “Hope in times of Adversity”. Given the multiple crises we are facing around the world, this theme provides a stage for residents and organisations to talk together about peace and show how they are contributing to a more peaceful and just world. With this shared dinner experience, we bring together citizens with different experiences and backgrounds in a unified message and act of hope.

The storytelling dinner evolves around five different 'restaurants' surrounding the stage of the Zuiderpark Theatre. These five 'restaurants' are each hosted by a different neighbourhood host. Five The Hague neighbourhoods are represented. The "Aanschuiftafels" normally meet at a fixed time and place and are all facilitated by De Participatiekeuken.

As a guest of this evening, you will be divided over one of the five groups. Per course you walk along a restaurant where you will be served a dish. In each restaurant personal stories inspired by the Just Peace theme of this year 'Hope in times of adversity' will be told. In this way you will meet five different residents of The Hague which have been chosen as a 'pearl of hope' from their neighbourhood. Between the courses of this special dinner, troubadours, spoken word artists and musicians will accompany you from one restaurant to another. We will end the program together with a collective peace manifesto and a closing reception.
