l'Art pour Elkaar - Urban storytelling festival

10 – 11 November 2018
On Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 November Bureau Europa will be the epicentre of a new cultural festival about storytelling and experiencing the city.


Designers, architects, and artists place a lot of meaning in their works. But sometimes this can be difficult for others to read or to experience. Telling stories about the work/design make it easier to understand; focusing on the relationship between amateur and professional, artist and spectator, designer and object, or architect and city, can do this. Stories and words give meaning to things.

On Saturday 10 November, there is plenty to experience throughout Maastricht: workshops will be set up, lectures will be given, and events will be organised for local residents at various locations,

'Small', 'medium', and 'large' tours of the city will depart from Bureau Europa, where a studio will be set up, led by prominent cultural ambassadors like
