Dear Animootjes,


Yearly we organise several formal and informal set activities. On this page you can find out about most of them. If you have any questions or suggestions for other amazing activities, you are always free to contact us!




Every year Animo organises a study trip to a European city, such as Budapest or Dublin. This year however, we'll depart to Stockholm! A beautiful city with lots of culture and lots to learn.


The study trip is a week of fun and informal acitvities, but also a very educational week in which we visit local companies and universities. It's good combination between education and fun. It is a good way to get to know your fellow students and to get to know more about your study and the local culture of a beautiful European city.


Date: 6 - 13 March 2018

Location: Stockholm

Open for: Animo members




Human Library

Human Library is an event which we organise twice a year in collaboration with Academic Forum, Study Association Complex and the central library of Tilburg. Human library is a library in which you can borrow interesting books, but not in the way you might expect. In Human Library, you can borrow human books and have an open conversation with them - ask all your questions and be inspired by beautiful stories. 


The idea of Human Library stems from having prejudices and the stereotyping of people, with the goal of taking away those prejudices and improving social cohesion. For example, what do you think about a refugee, a Muslim or a homeless person? Is your opinion based on prejudices and personal experiences?

Company visits
As a study association we find it important that you are prepared for your future working field in Online Culture. That is why we find it important to organise several company visits to give you an idea of what you are able to do after your studies. We organise several company visits throughout the year, and during the study trip as well. The company visits can be found in our agenda.
