What is your corona policy?

Health is important to us. That is why we always follow the advice of the RIVM, and take into account corona safety in our entire program. Read more about the measures that we take here. 

But it’s not only important to be cautious and safe, it is also important to reflect on these times. We will have to talk, discuss, try and experiment. At Mediamatic, we are doing that , and we invite you to think along. 

We offer various workshops that take place at an appropriate distance. You can participate in our aroma lab on Thursdays and Wednesday to experiment with scent. At the bar you can buy a seed card for 5 euros to take part in our open air installation 'Twijfel Zaaien'. Outside our building there are many exhibitions to see
