Artistic mission of the Concertgebouw

The Concertgebouw is an international music and performing arts centre, devoted to the development and presentation of art at an international level. It focuses on music and contemporary dance. With its Sound Factory (interactive space for sound art) and its collection of visual art, the Concertgebouw provides enduring opportunities for the (active) experiencing of contemporary art. A pronounced emphasis on creativity and imaginationtakes its programming beyond the mere presentation of art. Underpinned by its extensive art educational activities for children, adolescents and adults, the Concertgebouw offers intense artistic experiences, in optimal circumstances, to a wide and diverse audience, both in Flanders and beyond.


In addition to its own artistic programme, the Concertgebouw makes its accommodation available to others for events of all types. This includes the Concert Hall (1289 seats), the Chamber Music Hall (maximum 320 seats), and the various reception rooms with their panoramic view of the historical city centre. In fact, the whole building can be used for congresses, colloquia, product launches, receptions, stage presentations and much more. The Concertgebouw offers you support in the organisation of your event.
