The Hague, October 13th 2016 – At de Stiel, a community center for the residents of Stieltjestraat in Den Haag, we presented our research on a new care concept developed for Stimuleringsfonds in collaboration with Staedion, Xtra welzijn, Florence. The residents of Stieltjestraat reacted with great involvement and participation! The presentation was followed by a discussion with the residents and the volunteers. This moment of sharing has been a reciprocal source of inspiration for the development of our research and for the beginning of a new idea of community center for this specific neighborhood but also for similar post-war housing blocks in the Netherlands.
