‘Never alone’ is the slogan of the WE Festival 2011. Its aim is to bring together as many students as possible in activities organised in the Landbouwbelang from Wednesday 18 until Sunday 22 May. Workshops in graffiti, journalism, cooking, political activism and dancing are on the programme, as well as a student conference on sustainability, a panel debate on the recent Arab riots and the second WE Assembly. Music lovers can let their hair down with the various bands on Friday night in the Muziekgieterij, or on Satuday night at the WE Party.
