This week's Special Events

Big house meeting

This Tuesday from 4–6 pm, we have our monthly Big house meeting.

Everyone who has 'praktik' (refugee internship) will get a transport ticket to attend the Big house meeting – also if you don't have 'praktik' on Tuesdays! 

The Big house heeting is the democratic parliament and information forum of Trampoline House, where users, interns, volunteers, and staff update each other on news and discuss urgent issues related to the house or life as a refugee/asylum seeker. The first part is devoted to the work groups of the house (child care, cooking and dishwashing, gardening etc.), who will report about their work and discuss possible changes. The second part is devoted to discussing an urgent issue in depth.

This week, the big discussion will be about how we interact with each other in the house and handle conflicts. Two conflict resolution therapists, Marie Reiter og Mia Cortes, will come and make some practical exercises with us.

visAvis public editorial meeting

The magazine visAvis has begun work on issue #13 – this Wednesday from 5–7 pm, they invite everyone who are interested in being involved to a public editorial meeting.

visAvis is a magazine on asylum and migration – distributed for free all over Copenhagen since 2009, as well as published online. We create space on the edge of Denmark for writings, poems, drawings, photos, and comics about borders and the life that lies beyond them. 

Introduction to the Danish asylum system

This Friday at 4–6 pm, you can attend the Introduction to the Danish asylum system.

The lecture is conducted by Michala Clante Bendixen from Refugees Welcome every first Friday of the month. She explains the way through the Danish asylum system, how to assess an asylum claim, how many are coming, etc.

Entrance is free and all are welcome! A must if you are a new intern/volunteer/researcher in the house.

Guided tour to Center Kalundborg for interns and volunteers

Are you wondering what a Danish asylum center looks like from the inside and what life conditions are offered to asylum seekers in Denmark?

All guided tours are free (donations to our guides are appreciated) and open to Trampoline House interns and volunteers only. You are responsible for covering your own travel expenses. Remember to bring photo ID which you need to present at the entrance.

Free guided tour in The Bridge Radio's exhibition "Economy of Migrant Labor – for the Right to Work" in Trampoline House's art gallery CAMP

Trampoline House has its very own art gallery, CAMP / Center for Art on MIgration Politics. Join us this Saturday and get a tour in CAMP's current exhibition "Economy of Migrant Labor – for the Right to Work" – a solo exhibition by the transnational radio collective The Bridge Radio.

Made in collaboration with a group of people, who have asylum status, residence permits, and homes in Southern Europe, but often end up living on the street in Copenhagen in their search for some kind of work, the exhibition takes a closer look at the precarious living conditions for migrant workers in Denmark and their struggles for rights.

The tours are conducted by graduates from CAMP’s art gallery guide program for refugees and asylum seekers in collaboration with CAMP education interns.

The exhibition runs until May 19. CAMP opening hours: Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday 1–6 pm, Saturday 2–5 pm (closed every last Friday and Saturday of the month). Free guided tours Saturdays 3–4 pm (last Saturday of the month closed).
