Looking at the world today, we all feel an increase in insecurities with the political climate changing internationally, our far reaching student base finds home in school here in Eindhoven. We would like to use this potluck day to explore what the students need to feel confident and grounded here in these walls to be creative and strong together. With our this years potluck theme "Real World", we will not only look at the students needs but also look back at how alumni have dealt with similar issues in school and outside. By inviting alumni we will open up the discussion rounds with the students to have an additional outside view on ways to work with the stress of the school We will we curious to investigate questions such as: What did the alumni wish they had known? How can we feel ready and well equipped? How does one deal with disappointments in the real world?
