5 à 7 is an initiative begun by a group of BEAR and DBKV students in 2015. The idea was to have a space within the school for a more active and dynamic student life. The result was the transformation of the back coffee room in OK 74 into a ‘woonkamer’ (which has been baptized alternatively by students as ‘the nest’ and the ‘fight club’) and weekly gatherings organized by and for the students.

These gatherings have taken various forms such as jam sessions, performances, screenings, pop-up shows, karaoke, guest speakers, exhibitions, and workshops. Many initiatives have connected to local scenes in Arnhem and its surrounding area, including the underground music scene, local thrift shops, Code ROOD, ruruhuis, and art history faculty of the Radboud University in Nijmegen.

For the academic year of 2017-2018, the 5 à 7 ongoing initiatives will focus on issues of self-empowerment related to gender, as well as, transforming the newly acquired building that houses BEAR and DBKV into a more sustainable and creative framework, paying special attention to the back garden and how it connects to its immediate neighborhood. The 5 à 7 will continue to collaborate with local organizations and in particular with Bar De Groen, which is largely operated by BEAR alumni.

The 5 à 7 events are open to all, to follow what is happening when, please visit our
