The paradox of (un)limited Inclusiveness

Tilburg Tuesday 22 October

Watch the aftermovie

Tilburg is bursting with creative makers and students. The former textile manufacturing city is now known for its knowledge, creativity and innovation. Social innovation is of paramount importance to the city.

The CWF programme in Tilburg will inspire and activate you with creative solutions for social and local challenges. Changemakers will share the bottlenecks they face and will challenge you to think about next steps in the pursuit of inclusiveness.

We will start the day at the LocHal, Bibliotheek Midden-Brabant. This library is internationally famous for its beautiful design and finalist of the “Best library in the world 2019”. It is also an inclusive library, functioning as a living room and study for the city of Tilburg.

After the second keynote of Erwin Steijlen, composer of the SDG sound, the programme will continue in smaller sessions around the following themes:

  • Health & Well-being
  • Talent Development & Work
  • Identity & Human Rights

 

The sessions will both take place in the LocHal and in three other inspirational places typical for the city.

Peter Kok - Creating an Inclusive Library

The paradox of (un)limited inclusiveness

Everyone deserves the opportunity to develop their talents and participate fully in society. To be able to do so requires both knowledge and imagination. The Library encourages and enables the creation and sharing of knowledge and stories. Furthermore, the Libraries’ extensive collection is enriched with a programme full of wide-ranging activities. These activities come about through intensive collaborations with numerous organisations and local residents. From meet-ups about current local themes to courses on how to become more digitally skilled, there are activities to meet everyone’s wishes. Since 2019 the Library – with Seats2meet and Kunstloc Brabant – is located in the LocHal in Tilburg, a new, world-class urban living room that was recently named one of the four best libraries in the world by the IFLA.

‘An increasing number of people cannot participate sufficiently in society. Equipping these vulnerable groups is one of our core tasks. In an accessible public place such as the Library, everyone can take a next step in their development.’ Peter Kok, director Bibliotheek Midden-Brabant.

The sound of the SDG's

The paradox of (un)limited inclusiveness
LocHal, Tilburg

Although a whole industry would like us to believe music is entertainment, our brain actually conceives music as communication. Music has been around for over 100,000 years and has been very important in our evolution. Music binds and connects us, not in the least with other people.

As science has proven, our brains are very musical: children under the age of three will sooner remember a song than spoken word. Moreover, our brain gives us dopamine, the “happiness hormone”, as a reward for listening to interesting chords. Therefore Erwin believes that music is the best tool for communication, since it has almost no boundaries and no ‘language problems’.

Health & well-being


Quality of life is influenced by – among other things – a person’s well-being and lifestyle. This applies to everyone from the minute we are born until the day we die. If you are confronted with an illness or disability, albeit sooner or later in life, this can negatively influence your quality of life.

In the morning program you will be introduced to various initiatives, including the internationally renowned Switch2Move, the Speeltuin Bende and the More2Win, whom all bring people with and without disabilities, or with a different background, together through dance and movement activities.

The afternoon session centres round a dialogue with and between two internationally operating organisations: Nature For Health, which works on improving the quality of life and the living environment by connecting health and nature and Into D’mentia, who actively work towards improving the understanding of what it is like to live with dementia. It will even be possible to experience the challenges of living with the disease for yourself through VR techniques. The afternoon is co-organised and made possible by students from Fontys Academy For Creative Industries and the International Lifestyle Studies programme.

Talent Development & Work


An optimally inclusive society is created when everyone is given the opportunity to use their talents; whether this is in your free time, or in your work! Today, we will introduce you to impactful initiatives that are internationally acclaimed for their views and work on talent development. Creativity, innovation and personal attention are keys to success.

A range full of design products is created at Social Label, where top designers work together with people with a distance to the labour market. The Krachtcentrale 013 gives people wings and stimulates them to explore what it is that gives them energy. Re-integrating has never been so pleasant! And in theory a museum is for everyone, but what if you are visually impaired or deaf, for example? Studio I develops concepts for an inclusive museum experience. You will be introduced to another successful museum experience at the TextielMuseum, exploring work by (inter)national artists and designers during a visit to this iconic place.

Identity & Human Rights


Identity is what makes someone unique. You experience your identity through, among other things, origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion and political affiliation. Human rights play an important role in promoting and protecting both and individuals identity and personality, as well as group identities. As for instance the right to privacy and the right to freedom of expression do so.

In the morning program you will discuss how identity and clothing are intertwined with representatives of the globally operating organisations Capsters (the original sport hijab), Fashionclash (fashion and design) and Tilburg Cowboys (Human Rights Tattoo). In the afternoon session the central theme is the right to freedom of expression. You will be immersed in the world of (social) media and citizen journalism by the founders of the ‘Community Media Centre Omroep Tilburg’ and Roze Maandag – one of the largest LGTB events in the Netherlands.
