Art is our first language. Throughout the year, Het HEM presents a range of temporary art programmes as well as more permanent art installations.

“We must bring about the end of the world as we know it.”
There is always music to listen to at Het HEM, with programmes focused on experimental ways to create, present and experience music in the building through listening sessions, live shows, and musical artis-in-residence initiatives.
Come by for a drink and a bite, wine and dine at our restaurant, or settle down on our sunny terrace on the Costa del Zaano.
Het HEM loves books. During your visit, come lose yourself in the library's rich selection or discover new favourites in the SANZ Shop.
Situated in a former munitions factory, Het HEM is a new home for contemporary culture.
The building's industrial design and our experimental art programme bring ambience and meaning to every event.

The workshop covers topics as: Hardware setup and workflow/What is improvisation?/Using improv in the studio/Using improv on stage.
The workshop is free for anyone interested in producing music: from beginner to experienced producer and everything in between. However, a little prior knowledge of music production is recommended. Registration via the reservation link is mandatory.
