Cultural Agenda

WWW (who what where) is a cultural agenda for Amsterdam. Focused on art, music, performance, lesser-known cultural venues, sustainability & self-development. With a soft spot for world-music and multicultural events. 

DECEMBER

Ah, December! The season of all festivities, beverages, comestibles, and love all around! The season in which you are morally allowed to overdo everything and that’s allright. The year is coming to an end anyway. Here are Amsterdive’s picks for us to finish 2018 in the best of fashions. Oh, you can also find my favourite events happening every week down below, under “weekly programs”. Be my guest!

The whole month, Amsterdam Light Festival (free)

The most iconic winter festival in Amsterdam. Light artworks e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e.

Sat 1, Wasteless Winter Festival

Taste Before you Waste brings you a feast of rescued foods with workshops, lectures, music & all.

Sat 1, Brazilian Beatroots | Roda da Holanda – PLLEK (free)

Roda de Samba like you were in Brazil.

Sat 1, Red Light Radio 8 Year Anniversary – Sexyland

Mon 3, It’s Complicated; True Dating Stories – Comedy Cafe Amsterdam

Thu 6, Space is the Place: Klimaforandringer + Seb El Zin “Grand Bazar” – De Ruimte

This is a tip of my friend Alex, from Conjunto Papa Upa. When he says a concert is going to be good I don’t question. I just go.

The largest flea-market in Europe!

Sun 9, Mi:t / Dance Connects Company – CC Amstel
