Different art exhibitions and insightful talks from different talented artists on their prime offered their best artistic ideas that sparked creative fire.

From artworks to performances and from words to wisdom, it was a great start of weekend experience in Netherlands with something in mind. In other words, you already missed out a lot of fun and excitement from the first days of Amsterdam Art Weekend. In case you missed it, here’s a peak to tease your absence.

You can’t roam in silence. You have a company of great acquiantances to look forward. What De Balie, the Oude Kerk, the Stedelijk Museum, EYE Filmmuseum and many more built up wasn’t just an art event, but a cultural gathering of like-minded creative artists like you. The coolest artists that you can meet is a great chance for you to expand your network and promote your craft too.

BOS Ice Tea did well with quality of refreshments for a joyful experience. Also in the scene is Warsteiner that never failed to support the thirsty creatives. You’ll never forget their best beers. Furthermore, Ruinart is just what is needed as the oldest champagne house meets contemporary art. Needless to say, Marie-Stella-Maris took seriously in providing worldwide access to clean drinking water.

A healthy creative discussion was always on the go as The Merchant House talks with writer Dirk van Weelden and artist Hilarius Hofstede.

Taking passion extraordinarily was Eliza Bonham Carter, Curator and Head of the Royal Academy Schools at Marian Cramer Projects, who delivered insightful tips and ideas during her talk.
