"KKc is a place that brings me inspiration. The team, artists and visitors bring incredible emotions and experience. It is a place, where every day is full of new adventures. It is a place where everyone can feel like home and this is exactly how I feel. A free and light atmosphere, where you can get a delicious lemonade and feel the smell of incense."

Max

I am an EVS volunteer and a person with many different interests which range from art, design, architecture, math to computer programming, photography and film. I get inspired by creative people and love to work with and learn from them.

Maksis

"KKc is my drawing board."

Agris

"When I took my first steps in Maza Kanepe, I already knew it would become my second home. In the course of time, this certainty has become even stronger. I like cinema, food, comics, traveling, laughter, meditation and long conversations with KKc bartenders."

Monta

"After a few decades KKc will be recalled as a place where many great people, significant to the Latvian culture scene, have raised their glasses. It is the bohème which will be envied by our great grandchildren. A place of the epoch. A family to belong to."

Kristaps

"I am the audio engineer of KKc. I like benevolent fortune."

Laurant

"Head, Heart and Hands"

Ance

"Enerģija. Visam tā ir. Man patīk KKc enerģija. Katrs cilvēks ir kā skolotājs, tikai jāgrib un jāprot ieklausīties. KKc noteikti ir vieta, kas palīdz cilvēkos nest vēsti par to, cik mēs katrs esam unikāls un skaists.

Man patīk tā augstā frekvence, ko iegūst, darot ko patīkamu vai vienkārši iekšēju vai ārēju apstākļu ietekmē.

Ejiet biežāk dabā."

Lauma

"KKc keeps growing closer to one's heart and to one's home. It makes up an "extended family", and it is the second home to everyone. There are no other places like this."

Ričards

"When I moved to Riga I accidentally stumbled upon this place and couldn't stay away from it, maybe it helps that I live about 100m from KKc or that sometimes I take pictures of the events at KKc, but there's something that keeps you there."

Patrīcija

"I am at KKc to delight the visitors with drinks. I like to rejoice. Cheers!"

Anna

KKc's magic lies in its diversity. Diverse people, events, miracles and culture. This house definitely not only defines the era we now live in but also form the future.

Dāvis

"I am a passionate admirer of this house. KKc is like a movie which never ends because new wonderful characters appear all the time."

Mārtiņš

"Do I necessarily have to be on that homepage?"

Dita

"I'm at KKc because I like the feeling of being here."

Yuliya

"I came to KKc in 2016 and still can't leave. Sometimes I do some projects, cutting carrots or just meaningfully hang around.
I like to talk to the strangers, to be in places I've never been before and to drink good wine. I like dancing and noticing beautiful things around. I like art and being alone in a museum."

Edgars

"KKc was founded by me, my brother and my wife. I am certain that one can always hit the spot if he aims precisely. I like my wife, children, relatives, friends, cars, sports, Porzingis, numbers, business and politics."

Artūrs

"I am at KKc because it reminds me of time as a series of infinite and cyclical variations."

Satya

“I am doing the repair-everything job in KKc. I love this place, the vibe, the people, the music and my work. I can always create and be myself. If anyone has suggestions for improvement, please let me know!"

Laura

"It is pleasant to be among like-minded people and work in a creative environment."

Lučana

"I arrived at KKc very spontaneously - two years ago I applied to become a photographer at KKc. I came here, talked about what I wanted to do and have been here ever since. I like to photograph, to attend concerts, to ride my bicycle and to be in the woods."

Kaspars

“There are no “common people" who visit Kanepes Kulturas centrs. They are very different, their opinions differ, their nationalities differ, but they are all “KKc humans”. You can always hear endless chatting and discussions here even between those who were strangers several minutes ago. Even some of my really conservative friends open up for a discussion when they come to KKc."

Alberto

“Several times I had no place to go, so I slept in KKc. I couldn’t switch the house alarm on, so I slept downstairs, ready to act if something happens. I just put the mattress in the middle of the room, it was pretty cozy.”

Brigita

"I was brought to KKc by dance, but I am staying here to learn freedom and reliance. It is challenging and calming. And I like it."

Marie-Laure

A very enthusiastic person, fueled by good music, art & beers. The best audience for your crazy ideas.

Kaija

"I have a strong desire to be a part of that bunch of friends who leave everlasting traces in the culture scene of Riga."

Kristīne

"I am the coordinator of the culture program. Kanepes is a place where one can get away from the expected, where one can discover something new about oneself and where one can be reminded that the world is more interesting if we allow ourselves and others to change."

Ieva

"I married into Kaņepes family and along with my husband and his brother did everything I could to create this place. It turned out damn good! Happiness is real when there are like-minded people around. I like creating, traveling and doing yoga."

Aigars

“POCA forever”

Miks

“KKc is not the walls, it is the people.”

Normunds

"I am here because there's a lot to do in the bar. Family and friends awaken me, music, drums and my cat keep me from falling asleep."

Anna

"I like Kanepes Kulturas centrs."
