Why support the Kunsthal?

Since its opening in 1992, the Kunsthal Rotterdam has become an essential feature of the cultural landscape of the Netherlands. With more than 20 exhibitions and an extensive subsidiary programme, the Kunsthal manages to inspire more than 180,000 visitors each year. The Kunsthal stands for an idiosyncratic, low-threshold approach to art for a broad public without making any concessions in quality.

The Kunsthal receives a basic subsidy from the Rotterdam Local Authority, but it mainly depends on its own revenue. Sponsoring by businesses and private donors takes the Kunsthal a long way, but unfortunately this is not always enough. That is why the Kunsthal is actively looking for supporters, fans, enthusiastic visitors and companies whose donations make it possible to bring seemingly unreachable exhibitions and top artists to Rotterdam.

Support the Kunsthal because

  • there is nowhere else in the Netherlands or Rotterdam with a location on this scale where in principle every exhibition can be held with a programme that complements exhibitions elsewhere.
  • this makes the Kunsthal different, surprising and diverse.
  • the main purpose of the Kunsthal is to make art and culture accessible to all without making any concessions in quality.
  • the Kunsthal devotes much attention to education and the development of talent among the young people of Rotterdam.
  • the Kunsthal is an architectural and cultural icon.
