de Appel makes time and space for artists and allies to pose vital questions.

Founded in 1975 in Amsterdam, this evolving arts centre has a unique threefold structure combining a living Archive; a hands-on Curatorial Programme; and Education Initiatives that arise from deep community engagement.

Our varied public programming serves and learns with people of different backgrounds and perspectives in an atmosphere of hospitality, cooperation and experiment. Together we give shape to a dynamic sense of art and culture in our worldly city.
