The role of art institutions in a changing society

Project leader: Manon Braat

Nest started in March 2017 with investigating the motives and conditions of people to participate in art and culture. In addition, Nest tries to find ways to make visual art accessible and meaningful for more people, with different backgrounds. From the desire to operate more inclusive, from more cultural perspectives and with an eye for underexposed stories, Nest has had discussions with experts from the world of art and culture, well-being and politics, and realized experimental presentations and projects.

On the 3rd of March, we look back with stakeholders and interested parties on a year in which we have learned and tried a lot, and we are discussing concrete ways in which art institutions can find a better connection with the changing society.

An afternoon with interviews and talks with Simone Zeefuik, Imara Limon, Fiep van Bodegom, Fatima Akchar, Mariette Dölle, Poernima Gobardhan and many others. The debate is interspersed with a tour of the solo exhibition Infinity by Zoro Feigl in De Electriciteitsfabriek, a visit to the group show Another Dimension in Nest, and a short performance by Shah Tabibi, accompanied by his guitarists Niek Hoevenaars and Rik Strengers, as promo of his performance Shah of Holland, with which he tours Dutch theaters in 2018. Lunch is provided for a modest fee by Leonore’s Catering.
