We Are Leiden creates unique encounters in the city. Encounters between residents who haven’t met before, who may have little in common, but who all share the same hometown. We Are Leiden kicked off on August 27, 2017, in the old city center of Leiden. 150 Leiden locals gave personal tours to 150 new residents (residence permit holders, expats, and international students). We believe that knowing the right people can help you feel at home. Read here some stories about the 2017 edition. On August 26th 2018 the second edition will take place, sign up now!

This winter We Are Leiden organized a city dinner at Grand Cafe De Burcht and the Human Library in BplusC (Nieuwstraat 4). You can find more information on our projects on this website or sign up for our newsletter. Interested in past projects? Check out the project pages or have a look on our Facebook page for photos.
