Unplugged for Peace

  • Date: 24 September 14:30 - 15:30
  • Location: Nationaal Monument Oranjehotel

Join us on September 24 at the Nationaal Monument Oranjehotel for a remarkable event that brings together the magic of music and the profound message of peace.

Unplugged for peace is a classical music performance by an ensemble of the Residentie Orkest organised in collaboration with Nationaal Monument Oranjehotel and Just Peace, sharing a message of hope, solidarity, peace and justice.

As we gather at the NM Oranjehotel, to bring the Just Peace Open Day 2023 to a close, we invite you to immerse yourself in an afternoon filled with harmony, inspiration and a joint movement towards a better and more peaceful world. Let the melodies inspire you to take action in your own life, fostering peace within your community and beyond, and acting with solidarity with those who have been stripped of their basic human rights.

Reserve your free ticket early to secure your seat at this unforgettable event. Whether you're a music enthusiast, a peace advocate, or simply someone who wants to experience the beauty of unity, this performance is open to everyone.

You are most welcome to combine the concert and the Just Peace Open Day with a visit to the Nationaal Monument Oranjehotel. Visitors of the concert and the Just Peace Open Day will be offered €2,50 discount for their museum ticket at the Nationaal Monument Oranjehotel. The discount can be used only on September 24 2023. 

About the organisers: 

Symphony 2030 is the societal pillar of the Residentie Orkest and stems from the ambition to be relevant and meaningful to all residents of the city, from all walks of life. Symphony 2030 is linked to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Through projects like "RO in the neighbourhood," the City Orchestra The Residents, and customised initiatives with societal partners, we aim to inspire and connect the residents of The Hague. We harness the power of music to foster encounters and mutual engagement, to shed light on specific themes, and to build bridges.

Behind the wall of the Scheveningen prison is the 'Oranjehotel', the nickname for the cell complex during World War II. More than 25,000 people were imprisoned here between 1940 and 1945 for interrogation and trial by the German occupiers. The complex was soon given the name 'Orange Hotel', as a tribute to the many resistance fighters who were here awaiting their trial or verdict. But other people who were a threat to the Nazi regime were also imprisoned there: Jews, Roma and Sinti, communists, black traders and Jehovah's Witnesses. The prison was the most important German police prison in the occupied Netherlands, a symbol of lawlessness and oppression.

The Hague is the International City of Peace & Justice, and is famous around the world! Just Peace The Hague aims to Bring Peace & Justice to life for everyone in the city, through events, stories, and much more. Each year Just Peace organises the Just Peace Open Day in collaboration with the Municipality of The Hague and the (inter)national organisations in The Hague working towards a more peaceful and just world. On this day everyone has the chance to enter these grand buildings and learn more about peace & justice in The Hague.
