The Landbouwbelang, a known factor in Maastricht since 2002. It started as a squat and has become an institute when it comes to subculture and urban culture. The building is being used as a cultural freezone and incubator, a place for experimentation and a stepping stone for young talent.
Throughout the years a lot of groups have been active in the Landbouwbelang. In 2015, after several incidents and two evictions of semi-permitted parties, we sat down with the mayor. This resulted in the establishment of Stichting 06 and the signing of a covenant with the local municipality. This covenant describes a number of things which made it possible for us to organise more things in our cultural freezone.
