Volunteer at NDSM

The NDSM Cultuurwerf appeals to the imagination and is always in motion.

NDSM is a unique cultural place in Amsterdam for visitors from the immediate area, the city and far beyond. NDSM is the only place in Amsterdam where industrial heritage, art and culture, events, festivals, and (traditional) crafts come together.

Stichting NDSM-werf programs and manages the outdoor space of the 10 hectare former shipyard. A place with great appeal where special projects and events take place. To make our (art) programming possible, we are looking for volunteers with a love for Amsterdam (North) and art & culture who want to do this together with us. This means we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers both during and after exhibitions.

Do you want to be part of this unique place? Become our volunteer!

We are currently working on a large art exhibition, which can be seen both outside and inside the NDSM terrain and warehouse. From December 16, 2023 to February 18, 2024, Stichting NDSM-werf, in collaboration with the Kinetisch Noord Foundation (NDSM-loods), will present the exhibition: (Un)monumenting: ‘The Future Should Always Be Better’ at NDSM. This group exhibition features work by 12 artists from home and abroad, specially selected, created or adapted to the monumental space of NDSM. This is the next art exhibition where the efforts of volunteers will be much needed.
