Welcome to De Brakke Grond . The Flemish Arts Centre in the heart of Amsterdam, providing a taste of arts and culture from Flanders since 1981. Among many other things we present theatre productions from our favourite Flemish theatre-makers, new (free!) visual art exhibitions every other month and Sonic Soirée band nights featuring the best pop and rock from the Low Countries. We like to keep our eyes open for new art forms and hot topics and react to these by holding debates, ‘themed months’ and festivals. But why do we do all this? Well, because Flanders and the Netherlands have so much to offer one another. We share a common language and culture, which we aim to share and strengthen. Curious about what our closest neighbours are up to? De Brakke Grond is the place to be!
