: This study was granted ethical approval by the Ethics Committee of Ghent University Hospital (EC UZG 2016/0530). Written informed consents were obtained from all participants.
: Not applicable.
: Two coauthors (DB and WH) were also employed by the meeting place at the time of data collection and analysis. However, we do not consider their involvement in the current study as compromising, since its focus is not on evaluating or promoting the meeting place’s practice but on gaining in-depth understanding of its place-making dynamics during the COVID-19 pandemic. To protect participant confidentiality, DB and WH never had access to the raw interview data. Overall, the authors have no competing interests to declare.
