Het HEM is currently closed in preperation for renovations and will reopen in fall 2024.
In the meanwhile, you’ll find our programming on several off-site locations and on The Couch.
Our event spaces are available for rent until October 2023.
Art is our first language. Even while we are closed for renovations, our programming continues. You will find our art programmes at off-site locations throughout the year and on the digital platform The Couch. The permanent installations in Het HEM will remain open to the public after the renovation.
Our music programme focuses on experimental ways of making, presenting and experiencing sound in the building through listening sessions, live performances and musical artist-in-residence programmes. During renovations, we organise music programmes at off-site locations and on the digital platform The Couch.
We are closed at the moment. When we are open again you are welcome for a drink and a bite, wine and dine at our restaurant. With good wether we suggest you 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.
The building's industrial design and our experimental art programme bring ambience and meaning to every event.
Situated in a former munitions factory, Het HEM is a new home for contemporary culture.
Presence Presents is a series of gatherings curated by the participants of the Werkplaats Typografie. Two anchors host each evening: one is an A.I. bot that takes on different roles and is constantly learning as the moments unfold, and the other is a vending machine that facilitates the transaction of (mystery) goods.
On this day June 25, 2022 Presence Presents will be launched with a birthday party, during which the bot will be introduced and will learn its first words by bartending its guests at Het HEM.
This event will take place in the Light Room.
The entrance is free.
