Big House Meeting about House Rules
The big house meeting takes place every last Tuesday of the month. It 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 of every meeting 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 Trampoline House's 'House Rules'.
Trampoline House's 7th Birthday Party

Come and celebrate with us – it's also your house!
Opening of NEW exhibition by Pablo Andres in CAMP gallery
The Birthday Party celebrations will also be combined with the official opening of CAMP's new art exhibition by Pablo Andres – 'William Freeman - you can't hold an angel.'
This exhibition takes a closer look at conditions for LGBTQ asylum seekers from the Global South, who flee to the West thinking that there is freedom and safety for gender and sexual minorities there – only to find a refugee politics that does not always grant them protection and a LGBTQ community where queer men of colour often encounter sexual racism from white queer men.
In photography, video, collage, and objects, the exhibition maps Andres' encounter with homophobia in the Danish asylum process and with racism in the Western gay community.
During the opening, Pablo Andres will give an artist talk and do a performance. The exhibition will then be open for guests' viewing during the birthday community dinner.
