Lunch lecture: A theatrical dive into Frisian slavery history

This event has already taken place


In 2023, it will be 150 years since the Netherlands abolished slavery in the former colonies. During this lunch lecture, Guus Pengel, Henk Leutscher and Jaleesa Schiphorst will shine their light on the Frisian slavery past.

They will talk about traces of the slavery past in Leeuwarden and the activities during the commemorative year, including the musical performance Un dia nobo - Wan nyun dey - In nije dei. The performance is a co-production by Pier21 with Untold, Volksoperahuis and De Harmonie and will premiere on 16 June next.
