In 2012 an Oasis Game was organized in Dutch Quarter by Niels Koldewijn from Elos Netherlands and Kurt Schoop from Oasis Caribe Movement.
The Oasis game originates from the favelas in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Oasis games have been organized on Curacao and Bonaire.
An Oasis game is filled with games, dance and surprising activities. An Oasis game is an event for community members to make their dreams come true. By realizing their dreams, they also raise their capacity to help themselves in a better way and to connect them with their fellow community members.
During the Oasis Game in Dutch Quarter two years ago, community members were encouraged to express their dreams for their community. The second weekend, the community members start working together to realize one of their dreams.
The Oasis Games presents techniques that can be utilized for the positive development of society.
