looking for a new member
will be 1 ROOM available in
the Poortgebouw around
1st MAY 2013
used as studio and/or living space.
To enjoy living/working amongst 30 people of over 10 different
nationalities - artists, musicians, students - you need to be positive,
and equipped with a sense of humor. But this must be combined with
maturity and responsibility: we are looking for a (mental) age of over
from living together, we're also running an organization with many
diverse cultural activities like concerts, workshops and the weekly
eetcafe. We have won a lengthy court case with the owner of our
building, and we are now in the process of professionalizing the
cultural breeding place part, which will involve organizational
changes, thorough construction work to the building, and most likely a
this moment we are actively looking for people that have time, energy
and skills to contribute to the breeding place aspect and the
(bestuur) experience and Dutch
language skills would be a bonus. Handyman skills are also welcome, as
there is always something to fix in a big old house like ours. We
prefer long term commitment (>1 year) over short stays.
a requirement, living here is optional.
may look more like an advert for a job than for a living group /
cultural breeding ground, nevertheless we are looking forward to
responses! Please email us a short motivation for wanting to work/live
with us and how you envision to contribute (in English, as not everyone
here is fluent in Dutch).
