The hosting organisation is a venue for pop culture and media in Amstelveen (83.000 inhabitants) near Amsterdam. We offer a very broad selection of activities consisting of – but not limited to – concerts, dance events, festivals, visual arts, workshops, masterclasses and European exchanges. Every Tuesday to Saturday our café is open and every Thursday to Saturday there is a concert or dance event in our main hall.
We work with a small team of paid staff (8 fte) and 70 local volunteers. Our target group are youngsters from the age of 16 to 30. Most of our volunteers are also part of this target group.
Our aim is to offer activities for youngsters and to stimulate talent development (for example: we have 3 rehearsal rooms for musicians). We receive around 40.000 visitors per year on more than 155 activities. The capacity of our main concerthall is 650 people (standing). We partly get funded by the city of Amstelveen.
