Le Bateau (The Whale)

Founded by Laëtitia Delauney and Aur��lia Noudelmann, Le Bateau promises a series of events running until July 2024. All this is supported by the Stimulering Fonds Talent Program and the Amsterdam 750 Fund. The program offers diverse activities, including the 'Dream Boats & Cleats' Workshop, an engaging documentary "Fight with Care" by Qurratul Ain and a culinary steam dinner provided by Sankrit Kulmanochawong.

Be part of a unique project that combines art, design and community. Come together, learn and help build an inclusive future at the beautiful location of the Buurtwerkplaats Noorderhof. You can register for the next workshop every week via this link and join Le Bateau to build a beautiful whale boat.

Boat Meetings

Besides the shipyard, there are also monthly 'boat meetings', where artists and researchers are invited to give workshops and lectures about water-related issues and thoughts. Each event includes food, workshops, and free festivities for everyone.

Amsterdam 750

On 27 October 2025, Amsterdam will celebrate its 750th anniversary, marking a year-long celebration. Starting on 27 October 2024, a jubilee year full of activities for all Amsterdammers begins. Stichting Amsterdam 750 encourages residents of Amsterdam and Weesp to think of a gift for the city and thus contribute to this special birthday. Applications qualify for a subsidy of up to €50,000, just like De Whale. Do you have an idea? Then, see how you can apply for a subsidy.
