Culture week 2015
Cultureweek is an initiative from the students at University College Roosevelt. We came up with the idea in order to promote more interaction between the citizens of Middelburg and UCR students. We achieve this by organizing events under the theme 'culture' every year. This year once again we have some fantastic events for you to enjoy. Please feel free to take a look at our program:
Monday 27th April
On Kingsday we will have a lasergame-event. Together with ‘Stichting Evenementen Middelburg’ we will make Kingsday 2015 unforgettable. From 10:00 till 18:00 you can find us in the former elderly home St. Wilibrord, on the crossing between Bachtensteene and de Lange Noordstraat. Tickets are € 3,- for children under the age of 12, € 4,- for students and € 5,- for adults. All proceeds will go to the charity Stichting Leergeld. We have a prize for every winner!
Tuesday 28th April
On Tuesday there will be the CameRA (UCR student society for film making enthusiasts) film festival for short student movies organized together with Cinema Middelburg. Talented youth from UCR and the Province will show their work on the big screen during “the movie on the market square”. It will start at 19:30 in the cinema in Middelburg. Tickets are € 2.50,- and will be available at the door.

In the middle of the week we have a culinary highpoint, namely BRASA. BRASA means ‘to embrace’. In this event students and teachers prepare international dishes. Come and taste dishes from Mexico, Pakistan, Germany and many more. The event starts at 18:00. Tickets are € 5,- .This includes 4 dishes and a workshop in, for example, henna painting or Rumba dancing. Tickets will be sold at the door.

On Thursday we will have our very own charity concert. The acts that will perform are PEER, Steady New Sounds and various UCR bands. It starts at 19:30 on the market square. During the concert local restaurants and pubs will offer drinks and snacks. Come and enjoy the music, food, drinks and good atmosphere! All proceeds go to the charity ‘Stichting Leergeld’.
Friday 1st May
We will finish the week with not one but two events: a scavenger hunt and the ‘’movie on the market square’’. Are you going to scour the old inner city of Middelburg with us? On this day you will discover the culture and history of Middelburg. We will start at 11:00, in the Abbey square in front of the Zeeuws Museum. Bring your camera, to prove your team has the best detectives. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the amount of people in your and the name of your group. Check our facebook page “RASA’s Cultureweek” for open spots.
Last but not least is the “Movie on the Market square”. Enjoy two great movies with your friends and family: a feature film and the winning short film from the CameRA Film Festival. It starts at 20:15 in front of the old city hall. Bring your own chair and get comfortable with cotton candy or popcorn sold at the stand staffed by the Graduation week team (a team dedicated to raising money for the festivities for the graduating students). Keep an eye out on our facebook page for the announcement of the movie that will be screened. Entrance is free!
