De stad is van ons Thematic meeting - cultural entrepreneurship

Breda is the ninth biggest city of the Netherlands, yet at number 28 when it comes to cultural activities within the city. Because of this, a thematic meeting was organised last April. No less than 60 entrepreneurs met to work together on the cultural entrepreneurship in and for Breda.

The value of a good cultural offering is not just important for Breda, but also for Brabant. This way, both Breda and Brabant ensure that they become (more) appealing to (new) residents, companies and students. In addition to its economic growth, Breda is also working on its ‘substantive’ growth by ensuring a stronger ecosystem for arts, design and newly applied creativity and technology.

On Thursday, September 26, the second thematic meeting of ‘de stad is van ons’ (the city is ours) takes place during Graphic Matters.
