Hidden stories

Movies & Science

Whether it is the acceptance of non-traditional gender identities or the inclusion of people with a disability: public attention for those outside the mainstream has been growing. Many of us say we value diversity, but does that mean we are willing to change existing norms and practices? Three documentaries about the challenges of inclusion. 

Tickets are free, available through the website of cinema 't Hoogt. At all events a sign language translator NGT will be present.

This series is organised in collaboration with The Diversity Taskforce.
