Leopoldsburg Cultural Centre stimulates local cultural participation, provides a social-artistic programme and promotes community building.
Leopoldsburg Cultural Centre is a municipal non-profit sociocultural institution, subsidized by the municipality of Leopoldburg and the Flemish government, with 18 staff and 3 buildings (incl. a 440 seats theatre venue) in a small town in the province of Limburg.
It provides a social-artistic programme such as concerts, comedy, shows, film, creative courses. For the cultural centre, arts and culture are tools to build a stronger local community and to promote cultural participation which should lead to cultural equality, intercultural diversity and sustainability.
ENCC is a chance for our staff to network at European level and to get inspired by best practices from colleagues abroad.
Leopoldsburg Cultural Centre already coordinated two European Grundtvig projects (currently Erasmus plus) which involved its theatre group "Opening Doors" with adults with learning disabilities and was also involved in another project, "Tandem", a community arts project for European cultural managers. Participating in projects at European level broadens the horizon of the organisation, stimulates the sharing of best practices and creates opportunities for exchange for artists, cultural managers, volunteers and other stakeholders of the cultural centre.
