The group exhibition features a mix of internationally known artists such as Marlene Dumas and Tracey Emin, alongside up-and-coming talent such as Tanja Ritterbex and Charlott Weise. Curious?

Immerse yourself in the revelry of carnival

On Saturday, February 10, we can all take to the streets in our favorite costume. It is time for the annual carnival parade of De Merwekrabbers. With a route through the city, various carnival associations will present themselves in the most diverse carnival outfits and beautiful floats. Also starting at 2 p.m. is the 'Pleinfeest' on the Scheffersplein with performances by Alwin van den Heuvel and Mike van der Linden, among others. Of course the Hofkapel de Aftrappers is also present. At the Square Party is also the award ceremony of the carnival parade. So get your carnival outfit out of the closet and we will see you there!

Schouwburg Kunstmin: plenty of performances

Many famous artists say that Schouwburg Kunstmin is the most beautiful theater in the Netherlands, and we agree! The theater is a national monument from 1889, that alone makes it worth a visit. In addition, the programming is very diverse; theater, cabaret, (classical) concerts, dance and youth theater. This month you can enjoy everything the theater has to offer. For example children's show Pietje Bell en de Bende van de Zwarte Hand on Saturday, February 4, Simone Kleinsma and Paul Groot in 'De Hospita' and the wonderful dance performance by Igone de Jongh on Friday, February 16. But of course there is much more to see and experience, check it out!
