Making a Living from the Arts
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
14 - 15 September 2017

We would like to thank the 118 delegates, the speakers, the steering group and our dear hosts Academy of Theatre and Dance, Amsterdam University of the Arts for a motivating NXT Conference Making a Living from the Arts.

During the two-day programme delegates have addressed the challenges that the contemporary arts sector is facing and explored the creative solutions that are being developed. The NXT Conference has stimulated a critical debate on what is meant with cultural entrepreneurship in and outside academia.

Take a look at photo highlights below.

Stay tuned, as we will shortly publish the video from the NXT Conference. 

The NXT Conference is part of the NXT Project, a 3-year project co-funded by the EU Creative Europe programme.
