Monthly Sunday morning lectures organised by the master's programme DAS Creative Producing in collaboration with Adyen and O2Lab. 

On Sunday morning, November 12, Jeanne van Heeswijk will talk about community and various forms of collectivity, among others in the Red Light District. She has been doing research there since 2020 at the invitation of the Oude Kerk for her project 'It's OK...'

Jeanne van Heeswijk is an artist who facilitates the creation of dynamic and diversified public spaces to "radicalise the local".  In her multi-year community projects, she questions the autonomy of art by combining performative actions, discussions and other forms of organisation and pedagogy to help communities take control of their own future. 

After the lecture, for those interested in the master's program DAS Creative Producing there will be time to ask questions to students and teachers. For more information, go to our website

Deadline to register for the master's program: Spring 2024.

About the collaboration between Adyen and the Academy for Theatre and Dance 

In 2022, Adyen and the Academy for Theater and Dance will launch a special collaboration to provide a space for inspiration, reflection, and action in the heart of the city of Amsterdam.  

The company Adyen was founded in 2006, in the center of Amsterdam, by a group of Dutch entrepreneurs. Adyen is a payment platform that processes payments for leading companies around the world. It currently has more than 2,000 employees and 27 offices around the world. In 2021, Adyen opened additional office space on the Rokin, in the same city center where the company's journey began. In collaboration with the Academy of Theater and Dance, the company is opening its offices to Amsterdam residents to connect with, and give back to, the city of Amsterdam. Within its education, the academy explores the ways in which art can contribute to shaping the world, based on the firm belief that art can set people and the world in motion.
