Kanaal 10 Guest Studio

Kanaal 10 Guest Studio


The Plantage Doklaan is a collective project, located in the center of Amsterdam. In 1998 the building, that was formerly in use as a church, printing business and school, was squatted by a group of 10 people who in 2000 bought and renovated the premises with government assistance thus securing its future. Plantage Doklaan is run by the people who live and work there based on 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 include a large community space 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 events. 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.
