Its starting point is the cultural basic infrastructure, the structural funding system of the Dutch Ministry of Culture.

You will find basic information on funding and policy institutions, research and education facilities, as well as organizations that produce and present performing arts. These are not comprehensive lists. However, this site offers a good point to embark on a voyage of discovery of the dazzling Dutch performing arts. From world’s top DJ’s to youth dance, from contemporary composers to playwrights, from the exceptional tradition of performing old music to the unique present-day movement and site specific theatre.
