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 imagination takes 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.
