The Kunsthal Business Circle offers an inspiring environment with art and culture.

Every success story starts with a good idea, and this is just as true in business as in art. Innovation is the basis of progress in every enterprise. An innovative idea is often born when we abandon our daily work for a moment: on the bicycle, while reading a book, or on an inspiring location.

The Kunsthal Business Circle offers that location to combine creativity with enterprise. The Business Circle is a low-threshold platform for entrepreneurs based in the Kunsthal: the prime location for picking up new ideas and meeting new people. Every branch is welcome, from architect to orthodontist, from consultant to graphic designer. Each meeting is enlivened by an interesting entrepreneur, artist or member of the creative industry, of course in combination with a visit of the exhibitions. As a member of the Business Circle, you invest not only in the implementation of unique exhibitions in the Kunsthal, but also in your own organisation in the field of branding, communication and hospitality.
