The mission of POPEI is to let people discover and develop their talents and we do that with music and a social heart. So our core business is 'talent development'.
POPEI organizes about 200 activities based on talet development a year. These activities are bandconcerts, singer-songwriter evenings, children workshopd, presentations of cultural/education organisations, and so on. We like to coorporate as much as possible with other people and organisations. Annual we give around the 2.500 people the opportunity to take part at a musical activity by making music themselves.
Musical workplace and connecting
Around the 50 bands and 3 lessons organisations (just like Centrum voor de Kunsten Eindhoven and Rock City Institute) are using our 17 rehearsal rooms on a weekly basis. And besides that we haven 1000 rehearsal rooms bookings a year. Daily there are around 100 musicians at POPEI, this makes us a great profitable meetingplace. Besides tahat we try to have a stimulating role to connect musicians in an active way.
At POPEI, we have a broad view of talent development. Besides the development of musical talent, there is also room for the development of other talents. For example, further to POPEI’s permanent staff, interns and volunteers also play an important role. They contribute to the daily running of POPEI, which enables them to gain valuable experience and develop in various fields.
