What we’re all about
I’m sure that at first glance, you’re wondering what might be the meaning of our movement ‘Kaleido’.
Kaleido is an inclusive student community gradually taking shape. In its final form, Kaleido will be a spot for internationally-minded people to meet – a space where everyone feels welcome and is free to express themselves creatively.
Kaleido is derived from the word Kaleidoscoop which is Greek for ‘beautiful form’. It refers to a sort of telescope-like magical looking glass through which every subject on display changes its colours and its form in a very playful manner. We came up with this name because this is how we see Maastricht – as a magical city that is constantly changing. It is diverse, colourful and very international.
After long weeks and months of looking for the perfect spot to settle down before moving into the final Kaleido location, we finally found a home at ‘t Keldertje at the LBB. From August 2019 on we are going to set camp there every week from Monday to Wednesday. The programming will include creative sessions, workshops, concerts and of course a little party here and there. On top of that we want to give you a space where you can just relax and unwind with your friends and new people that can become friends. During the Kaleido days there will be a pop up cafe open from noon until late and comfy spots for you to work, socialise and have a nice cup a coffee right at the riverbank of the Maas.
At Kaleido everyone is welcome, no matter what you’re studying, which clothes you’re wearing, what music you listen to, if you’re vegan or a meat-lover. We are super excited for this next stage on our journey and looking forward to working together with the LBB Crew and all the other great organisations that come together there! On this page we are going to document the progress we are making with the renovation (don’t worry! We are going to keep the ‘t Keldertje vibe alive!). And if you ever feel like popping by and helping us out or just have a nice idea for the space, just shoot us a message!!
