'Hou je Haags'; take care of each other!

Spread the word: stick it on your window!

Locals make The Hague. At this time during the corona virus, you realise that even more. 'Den Haag To Go' is about supporting local entrepreneurs and events. That is always the case, however especially now. 'Den Haag To Go' watches with admiration how creative solutions pop up to keep things going. To express that admiration and give them a heart, 'Den Haag To Go' has launched: 'Hou je Haags' (which means as much as 'Stay strong The Hague') Spread the word: stick it on your window! Let's cheer up The Hague in this heavy period. How? Print or order the 'Hou je Haags' poster for free and hang it in the window.

The Hague residents are there for each other during the corona crisis

Help the local restaurants and cafes

Buy a voucher at your favourite restaurant or cafe

Due to the closure of the restaurants and cafes, the owners are temporarily without income. Help your favourite restaurant by buying a voucher, consequently the owners can continue to pay their rent and you will have something nice to look forward to when the doors of the restaurants and cafes open again.

Save your ticket, enjoy later


Dutch theatres, concert halls, music venues, event and sports organisers, museums and festivals jointly ask visitors to keep their tickets and thus support the cultural sector. The organisations came up with appropriate solutions for ticket holders, visitors. As much as possible, new dates will be searched for the events that are currently unable to take place and the original ticket will remain valid. If such a move is not possible, the event is canceled permanently or the holder of the ticket is prevented on the new date, the holder of the ticket will receive a voucher worth the original ticket price, including (service) costs, which will be charged later and can be redeemed. The organisers understand that if holders of tickets do not want or are unable to make use of this scheme for whatever reason; they can still reclaim their money.

Haagse Helden! - Corona heeft ons land gegijzeld. Terwijl we afstand van elkaar moeten houden zie ik aan initiatieven in Den Haag dat we juist dichter bij elkaar komen. Hagenezen die op hun zolderkamer mondkapjes maken, voedselpakketten bezorgen bij oudere mensen in de wijk, temperatuur meten van ziekenhuisbezoekers en jongeren die niet lang thuis kunnen zijn aan een baantje helpen. Om deze onzichtbare Haagse helden voor de samenleving zichtbaar te maken ben ik, Milene van Arendonk, fotoproject: ‘Haagse Helden’ gestart. Ze heeft k heb al een flink aantal helden gefotografeerd en geïnterviewd en wil hiermee een expositie inrichten in het Haagse stadhuis. Het wordt een combinatie van tekst & beeld. Ook worden er video’s gemaakt van deze intitiatieven. Initiatieven kunnen nog steeds aangemeld worden via:

Virtueel kunstwerk ‘Solidarity Sky'
In dit kunstwerk worden mensen van alle leeftijden uitgenodigd om kunstenaar te zijn en hun eigen 'stukje hemel' bij te dragen aan de 'virtuele hemel', bestaande uit ingezonden foto's van de lucht van over de hele wereld. Mensen kunnen hun foto's uploaden kan hier en via sociale media.



Do you have a tip for a good initiative for The Hague?
