Friday and Saturday 12–24h
Art is our first language. Throughout the year, Het HEM presents a range of temporary art programmes as well as more permanent art installations.
May 7 – 25
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 one of our restaurants Zanini, Bois or get a sandwich at Bakery Solinger,. 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.
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.
Since 2021, musicians and music researchers are invited for a 1-to-2 month work and/or research period at Het HEM to work on and ultimately present, new and interdisciplinary projects that further explores the depth of their practice. So far Thessa Torsing, Elias Mazian, Tutto Questo Sentire and Parrish Smith have worked on developing new projects in collaboration with several artists from other disciplines.
