Promena Foundation puts its stone to the building
For the event launch on November 1 Mr. Arezki Adjeriou was invited. He came specially from Algeria to give his support to PROMENA:
“Ladies and Gentlemen,
I would first like to express my great satisfaction of being here in the Netherlands in this land full of history, epics and civilization, the land of universal philosophers whose eminent Baruch Spinoza, himself inspired in his approach on the “free will” by the Algerian Philosopher the author of the “Confessions “, Saint Augustine.
I therefore cherish the profound feeling of being here a privileged one in view of the warm welcome that has been reserved for me and I would like to express my sincere thanks to the President Mrs. Eveline AMERICA for inviting me to attend the official inauguration ceremony of the Pro-Mena Foundation, just as I salute the whole staff who put all their energy, without forgetting the Municipality of The Hague.
For my part, I have the profound conviction that PROMENA, headed by my colleague the Honourable President, will be of added value to work for intercultural promotion. Knowing the energetic commitment of Mrs. Eveline, her open-mindedness and passion, I am certain that the foundation she leads will allow us to envisage new opportunities to work together in order to bring new successes and to win new challenges in cultural, economic and scientific terms.
My congratulations and my wishes for success to the foundation.
Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your kind attention.”
The Hague, 1 November 2016
The first event was already a great success; PROMENA’s End of the Year Party took place on the 8th December 2016. Invited were all organizations from the office building ‘ Bertha van Suttner ‘ at The Hague to celebrate together the end of the year 2016. PROMENA offered snacks and drinks, including Mediterranean sweets. The PROMENA team enjoyed together with staff members from other organizations of the building the warm atmosphere.
The next event, ‘What we hold on to: memories from home.’will take place in spring 2017 and will explore the state of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) MENA region, in the context of the current migration crisis.
