Live Blog: Day 7

Tix in conversation with Dutch Gilles de La Tourette Foundation

A really interesting event happening this morning - the Norwegian Ambassador to the Netherlands is inviting several young people with Tourette's Syndrome to his residence in The Hague to meet and chat to Norway's Eurovision entry Andreas Haukeland, better known as Tix.

Andreas has Tourette's Syndrome himself and was bullied as a child for his tics. He is a passionate advocate for mental health awareness, and wants to talk to Dutch youngsters about their condition and encourage them to embrace every part of who they are.

The event will be live-streamed on the Embassy's YouTube channel here, starting at 11:00 CEST.
