The Rijksakademie stimulates artistic development and forward-thinking art, working with a global perspective. For over 150 years we have brought together innovative and talented Dutch and international artists, and have invested in the roots of new art forms and movements. Our vision is that art is a crucial factor in an open and innovative society, in which artists question, positively stimulate, inspire and thus enrich lives.

Join us today and support a new generation of artists.
