Guided tours

Seventeenth-century Amsterdam is the lens through which we discuss and reflect on today’s culturally diverse society. As we tour the historic house with its hidden church in the attic, we examine themes such as reformation, trade, immigration and tolerance. In a discussion in the Attic the museum docent challenges participants to talk about their ideas relating to freedom of religion and freedom of expression. A tour that focuses on: history, social sciences, art and culture, civics.

Freedom and Tolerance tour

The history of the seventeenth-century house with the hidden church in the attic is a subject for discussion about tolerance, freedom and identity today. Under the Protestant burgomasters, Amsterdam’s Catholics were able to practice their religion at home but not in public. How free is free if you have to hide your identity? Today the question is still relevant. How tolerant do young people think society is? Do people’s opinions change depending on whether their perspective is from a dominant culture or a subculture?

Role models in class

Do you feel free to be who you are in the Netherlands? Free to think what you think, to believe what you believe and to dress the way you want? In this workshop, the class gets to speak with a popular role model about freedom, tolerance and (religious) diversity. How tolerant is society, or their school in their opinion, and how tolerant are they themselves? They give vent to their feelings through a creative activity!

Voices of Tolerance

Freedom, (religious) diversity and tolerance. Key concepts that every young person thinks about. All their different opinions and voices count. Voices of Tolerance invites pupils to air their views on these subjects. In a museum visit and various workshops at school they get to discuss culture, religion, sexual orientation, diversity and dealing with differences.

The programme is uniquely structured: it begins with class sessions, after which pupils who want to, can continue in greater depth in the museum. The focus in these sessions is on developing talent and enabling young people to take part in museum activities and exhibitions.
In each part of the programme pupils work with inspirational workshop docents and role models from various disciplines in art.

Check out www.voicesoftolerance.nl for more information about the class sessions, the in-depth section and options to participate in our youth community.
Schools taking part in the Voices of Tolerance programme can give their civics lessons an extra dimension.
