How to Participate

Unboxing Past invites as many different people as possible to exchange their thoughts about remembrance and how to deal with history. As diverse as the participants may be, the composition of the teams is also about achieving the greatest possible heterogeneity. In addition to specifically-addressed individuals and target groups, we also welcome your participation if interested.
