For seven weeks, the development of Oosterdok will be spotlighted in an exhibition and a programme comprising tours of discovery, lectures, debates and workshops – all at locations around Oosterdok.
Oosterdok is changing, in recent years faster and faster. It has long been characterized by a mix of residential and commercial uses, but now more and more people, Amsterdammers and tourists, are visiting the cultural institutions and the events that are organized here. This former dock area is increasingly establishing itself as a cultural hot spot.
But what did it look like before the IJtunnel and NEMO were built, when the Postgebouw was still standing? What still isn’t quite right and where are the opportunities to strengthen the cultural cluster still further?
These and other questions will be addressed during the event OOSTERDOK UNITED, which ARCAM, together with a number of its neighbours and the city’s planning department (DRO), is organizing. The ideas and views voiced during the event will be noted and will be presented as a package of recommendations to the city’s politicians at the closing meeting.
