Arty Party

Lynks, Doppelgang, OISHĪ, Passion DEEZ, Jade Soul

During Arty Party, the entire Melkweg is dominated by art. Every room, corridor and corner of the building is used as we present you the future of the Dutch art scene!

For this fourth edition of this evening art festival, the Melkweg Expo team and several scouts from the arts field visited all art schools across the country to scout talent at the graduation shows. A small reflection of this will be on display this evening. Visitors are thus introduced to the art of the future in a non-traditional way. In this way, we unite young art professionals, recently graduated and self taught artists, visitors and music lovers. We serve them a surprising combination of art presentations, performances, speed dates with talent scouts, fascinating talks and music. Arty Party is therefore also a special happening for the public.

On the evening itself we organize portfolio reviews, talks and lectures. The party is certainly not just for the graduated artist. Even if you are an autodidact, it is good to take your portfolio with you and have it reviewed during one of the speed dates with people in the field. Pictoright, Mondriaan Fund and AFK will also be present to speak about the work that they do.

Finally, various performances by artists will take place in the spaces. In short, an evening full of art you will never forget. We close the evening with a party in the OZ with various live performances and DJs. We will announce the line-up very soon, so stay tuned!

Arty Party 2022 is made possible by Pictoright Fund and the Mondriaan Fund.
