Diversity is a hot item in education. But what does diversity entail in practice? How is it experienced by Utrecht University students in the context of their education?
This exhibition is part of the project 'Making Journeys: Building Blocks for Diversity' (2017-2019) funded by the Utrecht Stimuleringsfonds Onderwijs. The project created a space where refugee

This exhibition presents a complex picture of diversity through photographs, writings, drawings, paintings, filmed portraits, and quotes.The personal journeys evoked here go beyond national or ethnic identifications. And there is room for everyone to reflect and add their experiences and
