The Batavierhuis is an independent makerspace and incubator for (young) enterprising artists with the aim of enabling Rotterdam’s talent to develop further and enrich Rotterdam’s cultural (music) life.
We show that Rotterdam takes its artists seriously and that it is prepared to invest in talent by providing the most favourable conditions possible. There is room to experiment and to inspire, there is freedom and autonomy. We have the Rotterdam mentality and are as diverse as the city itself. In the Batavierhuis, all the smaller Rotterdam music networks are forged together into one large network, which further enriches you as a Batavier. Each Batavier has his or her own expertise, so that much knowledge and skill can be shared, which contributes to the further development of the individual Batavier. Together, we form a collective, where artistic cross-pollinations can occur spontaneously.
