Mayor Onno Hoes and hundreds of children will be there to welcome him, after which Sinterklaas will take a tour through Wyck and the city centre.
The Euregional landscape
Marres and the NAiM/Bureau Europa in Maastricht asked thirty master’s students from the Design Academy Eindhoven to develop a vision of Limburg. They drew their inspiration from places in Limburg and the Euregion that they considered to be meaningful. The results will be on show in an exhibition in the provincial government building (Limburglaan 10) until 25 November. For more information, please visit www.marres.nl.
Will the Arab Spring grow into an Arab Autumn? Will the revolutions really lead to more democracy? And what interest does the European Union have in all this? These and more questions will be discussed in the Science Café on Tuesday 15 November. The panel consists of Heidi Maurer, Paul Aarts and Geert Somsen, chaired by UCM dean Teun Dekker.
