Portfolio holder Sports and Arts
Irene is responsible for the future of the sports and performing arts facilities at the University of Twente. In cooperation with the Sports Centre, the Vrijhof Culture & Events, the Sports Umbrella Twente and Apollo, her job is to maintain the facilities and improve them where possible. This will foster an environment in which students can fully enjoy sports and performing arts: both with their association as well as individually!
Large projects such as acquiring a new sports hall or gym also fall under the Sports & Culture portfolio. Irene is also responsible for the UnionCard and the cooperation with Saxion University and ArtEZ. In order to bring benefits to all students, the position also involves a lot of contact with external parties such as the Twente Ice-rink, Aquadrome, the City Theatre and Enschede’s Music Centre.
