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.

This winter We Are Leiden is organizing the Human Library in BplusC (Nieuwstraat 4). We expect many more special encounters at the Human Library! During the event, visitors will meet people with unique life stories. Visitors can have one-on-one conversations and ask personal questions.

More information on other upcoming projects will follow soon. Interested in past projects? Check out the project pages or have a look on our Facebook page for photos.
