Greetings, Gerben from Tempel

Tempel is a place where artists and creatives from different disciplines can work, collaborate and present. The building consists of studios, meeting rooms and a stage. The aim of Tempel is to bring making, sharing and experimenting together. We are looking for tenants from the creative sector who like to present work, search for the boundaries of their genre and who want to surprise the audience. The stage takes on various roles: sometimes it is a podium, sometimes a gallery, sometimes a workshop space and sometimes it is a space for reflection. The starting point of our vision is that these different forms co-exist and form connections, to form the unique character of Tempel.

The building was erected in 1929 by the Theosophical Society for Meetings, as a place for reflection and exploration. This vision has been preserved in the vision of present day Tempel: the National Monument will become a place where art is created and presented that is experimental, challenging and sometimes confusing. The visitor is actively challenged to open up to new art forms and modern forms of reflection. The atmosphere is informal and accessible to a diverse audience. It will not be an anonymous place, but a place where you come back often.

Events in Tempel are distinguished by their experimental character. It will be a place where artists work who push the boundaries of their discipline and sometimes go beyond it. The experiment and the contemplation are the binding factors within the diversity of genres practiced and presented. During the events, different disciplines are placed side by side, making the experience surprising and diverse. Events are concluded with an informal meeting between audience and makers, to encourage a deeper understanding of the presented works.

The building has recently been completely renovated. The studios are located around the common areas with a number of seating areas, an informal meeting place, a bar and a foyer area. The meeting and workshop rooms are located on the ground floor, the stage is located on the first floor. The net surface of the studios is not large, the added value are the communal facilities.

The Cawa studios
The artists and creatives are selected for their urge to research, experiment and their willingness to occasionally show their work on the presentation floor. Several times a year the programmer will ask the tenants if they want to contribute to the events. However, this is not an obligation. Cawa artists are given space if they want to present their work. By always programming two disciplines side by side, the audience interested in one discipline always has a glimpse into a world where they might not immediately be familiar with.

Because Tempel is located in a National Monument, we have built the studios, the stage and the meeting-rooms with care for the building. The new walls are kept separate from the existing walls. The spaces are therefore not completely separated from each other. Acoustic material ensures that sound is muffled, but it will be noticeable that there's other people working in the building.
The stage (135 m2) can change it's function per event. For example, it can serve as an exhibition space, cinema, workshop space and as a flexible stage for performances, whisper-concerts and installations.
