Community centres of Maastricht carve out their future


Buurthuis Maastricht

How do we deal with the fact that our boards keep getting older? How do we let the rules around commercial exploitation of community centres work for us? Which role does the municipality play in supporting community centres? 

These were the questions that surfaced when mapping the ideas and challenges for the community houses and centres in Maastricht in a series of meetings for community centre board members that were facilitated by Perspectivity. Nine themes were identified, amongst others about maintenance, management and exploitation, and will be discussed with the alderman. This will lead to a support agreement with the municipality and more connections and knowledge sharing in Maastricht.
