Kunstinitiatief De Cacaofabriek

Art initiative The Cacaofabriek (formerly The Dutch Cacaofabriek) is located in the old cocoa factory (Cacaokade 1).
With its three beautiful rooms, the art initiative aims to show what contemporary art is really about.
Every exhibition room has its own specific qualities that are fully exploited.
The museological great hall on the first floor displays art from renowned artists from all over the world.
The vacant spaces in between are filled with small presentations based on current events, e.g. (art) book presentations, prize winning artists or local events.
The following months, the downstairs room will be used to stimulate so-called cross-pollinations with the project “Challenged”.

The rear wall of the pop venue, located between art initiative The Cacaofabriek and the foyer, is used to promote the programs of the other users of The Cacaofabriek.
