IWCE offers something for everyone
Unofficial Groups open to IWCE members: Culture Club and La Place
Aside from our monthly general meetings, IWCE members are welcome to join Special Interest Groups (SIGs) — one of our most attractive features. These groups meet during the day or evening to share their interests and passions. Our SIGs range widely from Choir to Film Group, Bridge to Italian Conversation, Gourmet Club and so on.*
The IWCE offers other activities as well such as the popular Explore Eindhoven and Beyond (EEB) group, which organises outings during the evenings and in weekends for members and their immediate family members. Children are sometimes welcome too.
The SIGs are the core of the IWCE. Below is a short description of each of our sixteen current SIGs.
IWCE members are welcome to join the SIGs throughout the season.
For more details members can go to Members Only and log in.
The IWCE also introduces its members to unaffiliated groups such as the Culture Club and La Place.
The Culture Club consists of IWCE members as well as non-members. The Culture Club explores cultural sites near Eindhoven or elsewhere in the Netherlands, and easy distances to Belgium and Germany. Active membership is required. Members take turns organising outings.
La Place Lunch is a casual gathering where all are welcome to catch up over some tasty food or a drink. The group meets on the 2nd Friday of the month usually at La Place in the Piazza (Piazza 62, 5611 AE Eindhoven) from 12-15h.
