In 2012  Jan van der Kolk became chair of the foundation New Dutch Connections. NDC

NDC aims at bringing together migrants and (other) Dutch by means of theatre and arts. Its goal is to diminish the gap between these groups, to build bridges and to realise real encounters between groups that otherwise would not easily meet. Besides theatre and arts, NDC also organises traings for migrants, including undocumented asylum seekers, schools and business. NDC also organises initiatives in places of worship, and neighbourhoods.
