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.”
We’re looking for a Children’s Club Coordinator – apply by August 7.
We’re looking for a Fundraiser (in Danish only) – apply by August 15.
“The kids with citizenship got all that is needed, but not children who are growing up in the camps. I'm just sorry they don't have the same rights as Danish citizens. Also, they don't have the same opportunity, freedom, house, food, generally normal life.”
“There is discrimination on both sides. She wasn’t completely comfortable telling us that she was from Dansk Folkeparti. That’s why it’s an important thing for us to go to People’s Meeting and talk with people that are different from us.”
“If someone would ask what I miss the most from home, I would tell them I missed the smell of my mother and my brother. And the voice of the man I loved.”
“Before I started coming to Trampoline House, I was just in Roskilde. Sometimes I went shopping for maybe half an hour, and then I returned home to watch TV.”
“There’s a different atmosphere out here. It’s not about learning Danish or getting help with your legal issues.”

"The kitchen before was very small and wasn’t prepared for this amount of people, but now it is good, and we are working more professionally."
"Some of the kids have had a traumatizing past, but they feel very safe here"
