Kanaal 10 Guest Studio

Kanaal 10 Guest Studio


The Plantage Doklaan is a building located in the centre of Amsterdam that has served many functions, it has been a church, a printing
business and a school. In 1998 the building was squatted by a group of 10 people who in 2000 bought and renovated the building with government assistance thus securing its future. The Plantage Doklaan is a collective project. It is a building that is run by the people who live and work there along lines of cooperation and equality. Everybody involved is required to share responsibility and is encouraged to take initiative. These days some 30 people live and work here including architects, actors, political activists, crafts people, designers and many more.
Part of the facilities are a large hall and a smaller café. The hall once was part of a church, and presently used by outside organizations for cultural activities. The café can be used for exhibitions and performances. Regular events include political discussion evenings and performances and shows.

Artists, from outside The Netherlands, who have a specific project for this location, (in the centre of) Amsterdam are welcomed.
