Learning Circus in Hoek van Holland

Learning Circus in Hoek van Holland

The Travelling Learning Circus offers a creative oasis in Hoek van Holland. Brinkplein is set to become a stage for community tales and artistic ventures.

‘Travelling learning circus’ engages Hoek van Holland

The Travelling Learning Circus (Reizend LeerCircus) will set up its inaugural space for community and cultural engagement in Hoek van Holland, at Brinkplein from 16 to 21 April 2024. Orchestrated by Stichting Wijkcollectie, the initiative is designed as a meeting place where residents and artists share experiences through stories, art, music, and theatre.

The initiative aims to enhance community bonds and cultural exchange. In this edition, the theme of 'new neighbours' is explored, which has emerged as a recurrent narrative among the local residents. Nicole van Dijk, director of Stichting Wijkcollectie, has highlighted the complexity of welcoming new neighbours into the community.

Art and dialogue in Hoek van Holland

Throughout the week, Brinkplein will host a multitude of activities, including workshops, theatrical performances, and musical events, all centred around the distinctive circular open-air tent installation by artist Frans van der Horst. These programmes encourage community members to engage with each other and reflect on the shared stories of their environment.

Kick-off and week-long programme

The official launch on 18 April 2024 will feature local narratives, culinary delights from the area, and cultural performances, providing a vibrant start to the week's festivities. The full programme can be found here.

The Travelling Learning Circus continues its journey

Following its time in Hoek van Holland, the Travelling Learning Circus will move on to other Rotterdam neighbourhoods including Oosterflank and Oude Noorden, creating platforms for community engagement and collective reflection in each new location.
