DutchCulture Open House

Drop by on 13 December for workshops, theme sessions and advice. We gladly help you take your next step to the international stage.

13 December 2016

You are cordially invited to an afternoon full of inspiration, practical tips, personalised advice and networking opportunities.

For the Dutch cultural sector, international cooperation is becoming an indispensable part of doing business, but it does require specific knowledge and contacts. We are here to help you take a step further toward the international stage.

Come listen and share your experiences on 13 December. You can walk in at any time from 1 PM to 5 PM for themed sessions and workshops, personalised advice from experts, for instance on China, Brazil, Russia or Turkey, or for advice on heritage and artist–in–residencies.
