Women for Women | Stronger Together

Welcome to the International Women's Club Eindhoven!


Are you new to Eindhoven and would you like to meet women from all over the world?

The IWCE may be just the social club you are looking for!


We are a non-commercial, non-political, and non-denominational organisation that promotes networking between English speaking women from many different countries.


The universal language of music inspired some IWCE members to start a new Special Interest Group. Members regularly enjoy a 'lunchpauzeconcert' at the Muziekgebouw on Thursdays.


"It's so much easier too feel integrated and at home with people sharing similar stories." Susan (UK)


"Returning to the Netherlands was not so easy. I felt more like a 'world' citizen and the IWCE helped to meet like-minded women." Corine (Netherlands)


Many members and others enjoyed the IWCE Winter Market on 17 November at Thermae Son. The Club's bake sale was successful too: it made a €330 — €120 up from last year!— to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House in Veldhoven.





Photo contest


Our collection of wonderful pictures made by IWCE members is still growing!

Last month's photo contest was won by Simona Arpaia for "A Kinderdijk Winter".

Congratulations and many thanks Simona!

We will see the Helmond-based Vlisco textile factory which produces unique African fabrics used in fashion and art.

The exhibit focuses on the history, the production process, the designs, and the fabrics as a source of inspiration for art.


Vlisco fabrics are known worldwide as seen by this current exhibit in the prestigious Philadelphia Museum of Art. www.philamuseum.org/exhibitions/845.html

Glow 2016



Members and their partners enjoyed this year's edition of GLOW with a tour organised by EEB (Explore Eindhoven & Beyond). Braving the damp weather the group stopped at Usine and Vapiano's to warm up with a bite and a drink.
