On 17 January 1995 the Dutch and Flemish governments signed a cultural treaty in Antwerp. The term “cultural treaty” means culture in the widest sense here, because the full title of the treaty is actually “Treaty between the Flemish Community in the Kingdom of Belgium and the Kingdom of the Netherlands on cooperation in the areas of culture, education, science and welfare.
 
At the Flemish cultural house the Brakke Grond, in Amsterdam, you can see the most exciting aspects of Flemish culture in the fields of theatre, performance, dance, music, the plastic arts, photography, film and documentary. Innovation, cross-pollination and artistic daring are the primary characteristics here. Apart from being a showcase for artists from Flanders, the Brakke Grond is also a place for international meetings and exchanges. Whatever is making the headlines in the Low Countries will be on the agenda at the Brakke Grond. The Brakke Grond nurtures dialogue between genres, disciplines and communities.
