The White Building

The White Building is an innovative social concept that aims to fight the high rate of criminal recidivism in Europe. Developed as a pilot project together with the Penitentiary Institute of Veenhuizen, it is a transition space where prisoners gain work experience at the end of their sentence in collaboration with creative professionals. Based on creativity, the purpose of the project is to help prisoners find their own personal interests and strengths, while developing concrete skills matching the professional world’s expectations. The ultimate goal of The White Building is a successful, lasting return to society.
