With Connected.Dots, !DROPS works on three objectives:
1. Raising awareness on refugees in Belgian society
2. Empowering Refugees
3. Supporting refugees in developing certain skills
We achieve this through several tracks on supporting passions and talents, skill
building and developing services and experiments. During these tracks, we
focus on subjects like digital media, design and cooking, arts and crafts,
entrepreneurship and personal wellbeing.
!DROPS is a social innovation agency. As a creative collective we want to tackle important social issues. We create innovative solutions for the social challenges we all encounter. We facilitate, we create, we think, we do, and we see the cultural and digital worlds as tools to enhance positive change. We work on a multidisciplinary level, and we believe in ‘the power of the people’. We collaborate to develop long-term results for a bright 21st century. We simultaneously work close to our home and beyond international borders.
