World Hope Forum Book Club

Live from our kitchen table in the Pink House by Social label at Kazerne — as part of Dutch Design Week 2021 & celebrating WHF’s one-year anniversary!

13.00 — 19.00 (Eindhoven CET) / 7:00 — 1:00 PM (New York EST)

The event will be live streamed from the Pink House at Kazerne, as part of Dutch Design Week 2021. Take a peek into the kitchen, a place where people come together; to eat and talk, but also to retreat. An intimate setting where time stands still. The future of Social label lies in the democratisation of beauty, in simply ‘being’, and in surrounding ourselves with design with meaning. Social label believes that collaboration is the key to change, to a society built upon different pillars and designed around more social, fair and collective values — for a better human existence. Everybody deserves this. Design can play this transformative role by giving work and meaning to people’s lives, enabling disadvantaged people to participate in society.
