We are planning to hold to give you as much space to self organize evenings. For this, we would like to ask you to bring foods and drinks that are special to you, that have to do with your reality or that say something about you. Please remember that the centre does not have kitchen facilities for the participants, so do not bring anything that needs to be cooked. We suggest you bring:
ü CDs, MP3s with music that you like
ü Your creativity
ü An object that represents or brings peace to you
If you want you can also bring with you a pack of your favourite cookies or snacks that we can then share with each other along the week during the coffee breaks.
