Vertrek Karen van der Spek

Na jarenlang een belangrijke spil in de activiteiten en programmering van het Schouwburgplein gaat coördinator en programmaleider Karen van der Spek een nieuwe uitdaging aan op een nieuwe plek. Als coördinator heeft zij haar stempel gedrukt op het reilen en zeilen van alles wat er op het plein gebeurt, en zo heeft zij bijgedragen aan wat het plein nu is: een levendige stadse plek waar mensen graag verblijven en van alles kunnen beleven.

Pleinmanager Marjorie van der Windt-Veit zal het stokje van Karen overnemen. Zij is te bereiken via

Looking back at the Gumbo Sessions 2019
