City Central at Let's Gro

Once again, City Central is contributing to the festival with a extensive English-language programme for everyone to get involved in. You can join a masterclass and lecture with world-renowned scholar Taiye Selasi, follow a symposium on social progress and diversity or attend a workshop on co-living, among other interactive activities.

With the programme, researchers and professionals are invited to discuss, engage and share ideas on social cohesion and belonging. How can we ensure that the city adapts to growing diversity without losing its high level of social cohesion? How to ensure that all residents – both local and international – can participate fully and have a sense of belonging, in the context of international Groningen?
