The Kenniskapel

(Literally translated: Chapel of Knowledge; or: Chapel of people you know)

is a dynamic space. Companies, institutions, teachers, students and others make use of it. The chapel is equipped with all kinds of tech, whilst at the same time assuring the authentic character of the chapel is kept. The chapel speaks to ones imagination and is composed to advance and stimulate sharing of knowledge.

Curious to what you can do with this space? Come over or make an appointment.


For companies

Need a quick reboot, a fresh perspective, a different space, inspiration from a different angle? Thinking differently requires a different environment. The Kenniskapel facilitates this need. Whether it is for a brainstorming session, a break-out session or a workshop or sprint, this is your space. The Kenniskapel is an inspiring space which literally and figuratively give you room to think. It is equipped with everything you might need (Also see the facilities page). Share your ideas on one of the massive whiteboard walls. Think big and project your ideas on a 24m2 HD projector screen. Think in groups, move, and get in that creative yet productive flow.

For teachers & students

Are you giving a course or workshop and truly want to ‘WOW’ your clients or students? The Kenniskapel is a home for any kind of teacher. Whether you are a cognitive neuroscientist, a dance teacher, yoga instructor, marketer or other types of professional education. The space is dynamic and caters to your needs. Tables and up to 60 chairs are as easy to set up as they are to remove out of sight. Within 5 minutes, the room goes from a college space to a yoga studio. The idea is to gather completely different diciplines and have this be a space of interdisciplinary knowledge sharing.

Are you one of those inspiring teachers in the area? Than you deserve a suiting space! Come have a look and have your imagination be the only barrier to the way you teach!

In short:

Our vision is to alleviate the effects of misinformation on society.

To elaborate:

 The vision for the KennisKapel is to apply its old use for a new, modern purpose.

This chapel was a place to come together, to each other and to ask for or pray to wisdom which one did not have themselves. The chapel will again be a place for people to come together. But instead of (a) god, we will learn from each other.

Whether you learn about (social) sciences, society or art, you are welcome. A lot of untapped wisdom lies with the individual, who is not teacher on a university, does not have a complete, daily lesson plan, but gladly gives workshops, a training, lectures or a small event to share their expertise with others.

Whereas conventional routes of education are great for incubation of talent, it is a structure with an end-goal of a diploma. This takes a big (time)investment and commitment. It is hard to combine with a job, a family, a social life and other hobbies. We lower the bar for you to continue learning and hence make knowledge better available to everyone.

This ‘Knowledge Center’ makes a bridge between secondary education, universities, citizens and companies. By connecting individual ideas and perspectives, people are able to learn better, less biased and create a well-argued opinion. The KennisKapel is the space for companies, students, citizens and organizations to get equipped with the facilities to share and learn in a constructive and lasting way.

Of course, the chapel is available for private and other types of events as well. For all possibilities regarding these events, please contact us. 

Natuurlijk is de kapel ook beschikbaar voor private en andersoortige evenementen. Voor dit soort evenementen gelden andere voorwaarden. Neem gerust contact op voor alle mogelijkheden.
