Exhibition: There is no Difference

Photo exhibition by Willemijn Kappers at Het Ketelhuis

Don't miss out on thought-provoking artwork during your festival visit – take a peek on the mezzanine of Het Ketelhuis! In connection with our Crossing Borders theme, we've partnered with Movement On The Ground to display the photo exhibition 'There is no Difference' by Willemijn Kappers.

There is no Difference

After becoming friends with two refugees living in asylum in the Netherlands, Willemijn Kappers got motivated to shed some light and another perspective on the precarious situation refugees are in.

In her work, Willemijn tries to show a clear picture of refugees, in both a physical and figurative way, which can demonstrate how to see refugees from a different perspective.

Willemijn has merged faces of refugees in the Netherlands and native Dutch people to reveal their similarities. She believes we should put focus on these similarities instead of the differences.

Interested in buying artwork? Ask for more information at the Roze Filmdagen information desk. All proceeds of the sales of the pictures in this exhibition and the catalogue will be donated to Movement On The Ground.

Movement On The Ground

Movement On The Ground is a foundation responding to the humanitarian crisis affecting the innocent men, women, and children forced from their homes by climate change, poverty, and war.

We work on the Greek islands of Lesvos and Samos which are currently home to almost 28.000 refugees and asylum seekers. Basing our projects on the goal of improving dignity for the refugee population. Providing proper shelter keeping people dry, electricity to light and heat the tents and wifi to stay connected to family & friends. We also run a waste management program to keep the living areas clean, safe and healthy.

Community building is essential in everything we do. Refugee volunteers from different backgrounds take responsibility for their living conditions and well-being. We also work extensively with the local Greek community in an attempt to connect the people of Lesvos and Samos with refugees.
