Cultural events

Do you like cultural events, theater, opera and museums ? Wellcome to the smARTs group !!

This group is made to organize cultural events once a month in each region of Switzerland. If you want to be an events organizer please tell me. I'll give you the administrator status of the group. For the moment only Romandie has an organizer. I hope some "Schwiizerdütsch" will be motivated to do it!

Until yet the events where about paintings museums but don't worry others kinds of events will be organized soon. 

I am also planning to make a "Blue Angels" system like we have for the camps. Some events can be expensive like operas. This sytem can make it afordable for students. We will vote about this idea.
