For one day, can you wear my story?

Wearable Stories focuses on underexposed stories. Especially for Jonge Harten, the makers of Raven explore both literally and figuratively ‘wearing and being worn’. In their pop-up studio at the Social Hub, you can become familiar with these stories in an interactive manner. From Nov. 17 to 23, the pop-up studio can be visited every day between 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 6 and 8 p.m.

Raven has sought contact with young people from care institutions such as Cordaan in Amsterdam and Elker Youth Care in Groningen. Based on their stories, the youngsters are designing their own limited edition jacket together with Raven’s makers. Fashion label Bonne Suits provides the basis for these jackets. In designing the jackets, the young people take you into their experiences and the struggles they face. What of this is visible on the outside and what does it do on the inside?

During the festival, you as an audience along with performing artists such as dancers, actors and rappers from Jonge Harten will have the chance to become part of this research. You will have the opportunity to wear the young people’s coats for one day and thus become part of the (wearable) artwork. After this day, you will react to the personal stories of the young people. Raven will eventually bring those reactions back to the young people in the care facilities.

Will you wear the story?

Will you wear the coat of one of these young people for one day? Then book a (free) ticket. Then come by in the morning (between 10. a.m. and 12. a.m.) at Atelier Raven, Social Hub, Groningen (Boterdiep 9) and become part of this (wearable) artwork for the whole day. Between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. you return the coat and give your reaction to the young person’s personal story.

Stay with the trouble


Jonge Harten offers a diverse program. But where do you start choosing? To clarify things somewhat, we have three main storylines that we are focusing on this year. You can see these lines throughout our program. So that you can easily choose which line suits you best and what you feel like doing at the moment. What are you going for?





FIELD was created to strengthen the bond with young talent and to give both the artists and the festival the opportunity to support people in the longer term and to make their “dreams” come true. We focus in particular on students who we feel (after conversations and performances) connect themselves as creators with the world beyond. In a conscious, critical and idiosyncratic way.

A program line in which we put creative young people on stage and in which you can participate in great masterclasses yourself. We ensure that you are pampered all day long and of course we close the day with a great party, by none other than Clash!

Kom je er toch nog niet helemaal uit? Geen nood: stuur een mailtje naar info@jongeharten.nl en vraag om nadere toelichting. Vermeld de titel van de voorstelling en waar je graag meer duidelijkheid over wilt hebben (is dit iets om met mijn vriend/vriendin naartoe te gaan? het is misschien wel grappig maar toch niet vulgair? dat soort vragen). De programmeurs van het festival geven je dan persoonlijk het verlossende antwoord!
