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.

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.
This afternoon in Het HEM, Grachtenfestival presents two special jazz performances; Ava Lavá and NINO
Ava Lavá enchants the Gray Space with her own compositions that take you to her world where jazz is influenced by Brazilian and Georgian sounds.
The new NINO trio, consisting of three young improvisers, is a crossroads where three different musical paths meet. In this synthesis of acoustic and electronic instruments, they try to overthrow the conventional sound of a piano trio, with the Prophet synthesizer as their main weapon.
During the break and after the concerts, a DJ will play a DJ set in the Living Room. Sit down, enjoy a small bite and a drink and enjoy the atmosphere.
