This season's public program is over
Our event spaces are available for rent.
Art is our first language. Throughout the year, Het HEM presents a range of temporary art programmes as well as more permanent art installations.
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.
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.
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.
In analogy with the many pillars which keep Het HEM physically upright, we organise the Pillars programme and are actively looking for donors who would like to put their weight behind Het HEM.
To realise its artistic programme, Het HEM relies on like-minded people: those who keep a close watch on cultural developments and recognise the importance of Het HEM as a platform where a broad range of today’s makers and thinkers are given the opportunity to realise legendary art projects that address diverse audiences and engage them in social issues.
Our Pillars support Het HEM with an annual contribution of €250, €500, €1,000 or €2,500. In exchange for their support, we organise various activities that bring them closer to Het HEM and its community. Pillars of support follow the growth process of Het HEM into becoming the innovative culture platform it wants to be and get to know the makers behind the diverse programmes.

Pillars of Support at this Bronze level are invited to unique and shared surprises based around an art piece or artist of Het HEM in addition to the perks included in the previous Bronze level.
Silver Pillars of Support get even closer to Het HEM. We organise a personalised meeting for you with pioneers in the contemporary cultural field.
People who give €2.500 get the biggest surprises of all, including a piece of Het HEM which they can take home. Golden Pillars of Support receive a Guardian Angel, a sculpture made by the artist Isa van Lier in honour of our supporters. Additionally, you will be treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience with an artist.
