    The Present X The Turn Club: Meetup #22 De Vrolijkheid
    During our meetups, you are introduced to some of the most amazing social initiatives, and have the opportunity to connect with likeminded entrepreneurs and tackle social challenges together. We are very excited to announce that on the 15th of June we will meet again – in person! Our first live meetup of 2021 will be a special one: we are teaming up with Merlijn Twaalfhoven’s initiative The Turn Club. This artist collective uses the ‘artist mindset’ to tackle social challenges. On the 15th of June entrepreneurs of The Present will join forces with artists to offer creative solutions to the mission of Stichting De Vrolijkheid. De Vrolijkheid empowers young residents in asylum seeker's centres through art and music. Curious to hear more about this wonderful initiative? Join us on the 15th!
