Friday Night LIVE

Start your weekend with Friday Night LIVE! On each third Friday of the month you will be welcome at the Kunsthal for an exciting and inspiring programme infused with a generous dose of art.

The exhibition 'Fiddling Around' - which brings together 25 years of 75B's creative designs - is the source of inspiration for this vibrant evening. Discover it all during Friday Night LIVE!

Complimentenmakers (compliments makers)

Compliment makers specialize in quickly seeing what makes you so nice, special or 'special', and pencil it down on the spot. And that is something you could use, because strangely enough you often overlook the things that make you special. When they compliment you, they are giving you a 'gift' to yourself. A compliment is like a sweet reminder of your wonderful self.
