ABOUT OUR CULTURAL COURSES

All our Cultural Courses for CreaTe are planned during the evening (Note: this has changed in comparison to last year when they were scheduled on the Wednesday afternoon). For each of the courses we ask your commitment. On the financial side, this means an individual contribution of 25 Euros for each course.

For more information about the content and organization of the courses you can contact Mark Weirath (mark.weirath@utwente.nl).
