Cultural Partner

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

The Stedelijk Museum was founded in 1874 by a group of private citizens in Amsterdam, led by C.P. van Eeghen, who donated funds and their art collections to establish a museum in the capital of the Netherlands that would be devoted to modern art. The collection, housed at first at the Rijksmuseum, was moved in 1895 into the Museum’s own building, designed by A.W. Weissman.

Mobility Partner


At Roetz, we believe in second chances and pursue a circular and inclusive future. We don’t judge a book by its cover: where others see waste and inability, we see useful materials and promising talent. At the Amsterdam-based Roetz Fair Factory, men and women returning to the job market make new bikes from discarded ones. By hand and with pride. We train them to become skilled bicycle technicians and do everything in our power to help them find permanent employment.

Community Partners


BNO, the Association of Dutch Designers is founded by designers, for designers. Our history goes back more than a hundred years. What’s more important is what we are today: the largest community of designers and design agencies in the Netherlands.
