Vrijplaats Leiden

Vrijplaats Leiden

Short url: 


The vrijplaats (literally ‘free space’) is a cultural and social center, which brings together a multitude of nonprofit-making organizations and individuals and provides them with a space where their innovative ideas can unfold as freely as possible.
The founding principles of the vrijplaats are sustainability, solidarity, voluntary participation and direct democracy. This set of values constitute a framework that can accommodate a variety of cultural and social  initiatives. Thus, the vrijplaats will host a weggeefwinkel (a “store” which is not quite a store: things are not sold and bought here, but brought in and given out for free), the Fabel van de illegaal (an organization which fights against racism and social exclusion), as well as a meeting space with a kitchen serving organic vegetarian food and organic drinks. There will be a public activities hall as well, which can provide a floor for debates, theater shows, music performances, film viewings. In the future we also expect to welcome other, new organizations that are culturally or socially involved.
