ARhus is an open knowledge center in the heart of the city of Roeselare. ARhus aspires to connect, innovate and stimulate lifelong learning and entrepreneurship. We are widely visited by all layers of the population and accepted as a neutral and inclusive meeting ground. ARhus is strongly connected with several important stakeholders in the region, such as the hospital AZ Delta, a whole range of companies and educational partners of course. Partnering up with all of these stakeholders, we provide interesting activities for the people, aiming at different kinds of knowledge: digital and media literacy, health literacy, civic & ethical literacy, reading, learning new languages… Besides the regular activities in ARhus (approx. 400 a year) we also set up larger (and longer) projects such as SIREE (social integration of refugees through education and self employment). Since the openings of ARhus, we’ve reached more and more people every year. Now, approx. 400 000 persons a year visit our knowledge center. Our operations consist of 4 elements: 1. Library, 2. Projects, 3. ARhus Café and 4. Meeting rooms and events.
