Conference Dinner

The conference dinner will take place on Thursday evening, 13 August 2020 at the Restaurant de IJkantine, reachable by a free ferry from the back side of Central Station.

NDSM Wharf


Restaurant de IJkantine is located at the NDSM-wharf. From the 1920s until the 1980s, the NDSM-wharf was one of the biggest shipyards in the world, regularly launching huge impressive tankers from its slipways. After this activity ceased, this sprawling location – and its imposing backdrop of crane tracks, sheds and the gigantic slipway – became a home port for creative pioneers.

The colossal shipbuilding shed was transformed into ‘Kunststad’ (‘Art City’), an architectural monument housing some four hundred artists, designers, architects and set designers: one of the biggest artistic incubators in ‘Neerland’, as the locals call Holland.
