Which day should I go?
All days are fun! We are open daily between 11am – 7pm. The weekends are the busiest, during the week there are many schools-tours and some artists also leave briefly to have a look at other exhibitions. The second weekend it is the most crowded and waiting lines can arise between 2 and 5 pm. The artists are still the “freshest” the first weekend. And especially share your business card, or research how you can help each other.
Press: Be sure to visit Tuesday 4pm for the Young Talent Award Ceremony.
How much is it?
Free! But voluntary donations always welcome.
But you get lots of money from the art funds?
Art funds are often 6x over-asked. We applied for a relatively low amount per fund, in order to qualify for something. These contributions don’t cover our costs. We therefore ask for instance for a small contribution for a student tour. That is fun to do: you will be guided through the exhibition.
In addition, it is also good to support the artists and art initiatives, to make the city a better place. Moreover, we all need inspiration and culture. What else do we have? Sunday shopping and commercial television? If you already have everything in-the-house-you-need, considering making a donation to an artist individually, to adopt him or her as Angel, or to support the foundation. This can be done on location or via www.violavirus.nl/anbi. In America they do this more than here: it is tax-deductible. In the Netherlands this is called a cultural anbi: if you donate your profits, you get 50% back from the Tax Department.
The world has an imbalance between technology that develops commercially, and technology that develops with the aim of a better world, one with “sweeter, more human technology” aka TECH FOR GOOD: the latter we stimulate.
Can I make photos?
Yes, share them online and tag us. People with really good cameras (or new phones): please share daily via WeTransfer to organisatie [at] manifestations.nl and on your Facebook / Instagram, without logos on the pictures, for non-profit use. We will give you credit.
Can I take photos?
Ofcourse! You can take the wheelchair elevator at the back of the building (short end by the elevated roadway). Ask at the DDW INFO desk on the small square next to the Veem Building for more information!
I see a mistake on the website or I do not agree with it.
Good! Let us know that and we’ll fix it: organisatie [at] manifestations.nl
Maybe you even want to sign up as a volunteer? This way we can prevent more mistakes.
