Moira is a music and arts venue in the city center of Utrecht, Netherlands.

History[edit]

The building at Wolvenstraat 10 was built in 1906. From 1939 until 1959, it was the Zegers dance school. The insurance company Moira turned it into a canteen, then after it became derelict it was squatted in 1983.[1] Legalized in 1990, it focuses on early career artists and innovative performances.[citation needed] Moira Foundation offers a stage to early career artists and musicians who have made little or no name in the established circuit. The exhibition space Moira organizes about ten events every year.[2] There is a weekly open mic night.[3]
