Oost-Indisch Doof

the past is closer than you think

Welcome to the website of Oost-Indisch Doof!

A broad project about the decolonization war in Indonesia. Get to know this loaded piece of history in an accessible but compelling way. A history that is much closer than you think! Through a documentary, a traveling exhibition and an educational curriculum, "East-Indian Deaf" will contribute to the knowledge and negotiability of this war. We want to build bridges and connect groups in both the Netherlands and Indonesia. A project by Hanneke Coolen-Colsters.
