Go West on Cultural Sunday

Last updated 2 years ago by Jon Wilkins

Cultural Sunday arrives again in Utrecht with a host of activities for all ages.

Remember we mentioned this some weeks ago, so now having booked the day you need to get along and enjoy the activities.

You need to adventure into Utrecht West, where they will reminisce about what it was like and also experience what it is like now, and look ahead with new plans to what the future will hold.

Where are the roots, what gives colour to the current identity and character of the different neighborhoods?

Meet the residents, neighborhood initiatives, creative makers, institutions and businesses.

Visit hidden neighbourhoods and  historical locations and learn how the West of Utrecht  relates to the rest of the city and to the developments that Utrecht is going through now.

You will be able to listen and watch stories in the form of poems, theatre, exhibitions, film, performances, lectures, excursions and much more.

Go West stands for discovering and experiencing, for surprise and adventure.

Together with residents and neighborhood initiatives, a programme has been put together that shows what Utrecht West stands for.

Connoisseurs and eyewitnesses will talk about working and living in the early years of Utrecht West, and if you go on one of the many excursions and get to know residents and entrepreneurs working on their dreams for West you will be able to experience their dreams as well.

Go West is made possible in part thanks to a financial contribution from The Initiatives Fund of the Municipality of Utrecht and Winkeliersvereniging Lombok.
