When What Where – September

WWW is a cultural agenda focused on art, music, lesser-known cultural venues, sustainability & self-development. With a soft spot for world-music and multicultural events. 

Omg. What a challenge it was to go through ALL the events in town for this month. I feel that, with every year, the cultural offer in Amsterdam just increases. After all, September seems to be the month of all beginnings. Here’s the juicy stuff, handpicked for you.
