Christina Bilde is Spokeswoman & Head of Corporate Communicate of Roskilde Festival Charity Society
She explains why Roskilde Festival supports Trampoline House:
“The people involved with Trampoline house have really succeeded in creating a meeting place and an open environment that attracts people across ethnicities and backgrounds.
As we saw at this year’s Roskilde Festival, it’s been done by working in many areas: with food, with art, and through the meeting and conversation between people.
It is very inspiring, but unfortunately it is also an effort that is constantly, and particularly these days, under pressure. That is why it was important for us, now more than ever, to support you with a donation.”

2016 was a fateful year for Trampoline House. We began the year by officially declaring the house in danger of closing, and at the same time, we witnessed a humanitarian catastrophe on the political level that included the jewelry act, border control, stricter asylum policies and deliberate deterioration of asylum seekers’ conditions. The result was evident amongst the asylum seekers that we meet: increased poverty, isolation, and forced passivity.
