23 Oct

Info morning at Expat Archive Centre

The Expatriate Archive Centre in The Hague will hold an open morning on Wednesday, 23 October to inform visitors about how the archive stores and shares expat stories.

Whether you’re an expat with a story to tell, looking for volunteering opportunities, researching expatriation, or if you’re simply curious about what the Archive does, you are welcome to attend and find out more about the unique archive.

In the introduction morning you will see a short presentation about the history of the archive from its foundation by Shell spouses to the independent institution it is today. You will be able to look around the centre and see the specially-constructed storage room. Refreshments will be provided, and there will be plenty of opportunity to speak to the archive staff and ask them your questions.
