Open March 2022
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.
Support from funding bodies, individuals and companies to Het HEM Foundation contribute towards the realisation of the artistic programme. Our patrons enable us to present, create and share art and culture in the most contemporary and wayward forms with as large and diverse an audience as possible. Together we usher a new movement that supports artistic experimentation and lowers the threshold for art for its audiences.
Het HEM is a cultural ANBI, an Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling (Public Benefit Organisation), and does not have to pay tax on your donation. Therefore you donate 100%. Donating to an ANBI is often also tax deductible for the donor, making it possible to donate 100% and pay only 40%. For more information please see this website.
Are you enthusiastic about our mission? We would like to invite you for a meeting to explore the possibilities for collaboration. We are always looking for like-minded funding bodies, individuals and companies who want to think along with us and contribute to our programme.
