Here, jazz history is celebrated, young talent developed and the conversation about musical conventions and freedom is continuously taking place. We have been a junction in the national and international network of groundbreaking music since 1974.
We promises the audience a reciprocal concert experience in a beautiful place, where state-of-the-art, groundbreaking jazz is created. In a personal atmosphere with perfect sound.
Our programs are rooted in free thinking. We have been doing this since 1974 with musicians, makers, programmers and audiences who all contribute to the conversation about (musical) conventions and freedom.
We shape the changing world: we facilitate projects, and initiate and organize the creation of new work.
The BIMHUIS is, like jazz itself, an open form, continuously developing in relation to the world – a mentality. We create conditions in all layers of the organization to listen carefully for more mutual understanding. Listening to the music, to makers, to each other, to our visitors and to society.
The BIMHUIS has an ANBI status. The Municipality of Amsterdam supports us with a multi-year subsidy and our program is made possible in part by Fonds Podiumkunsten, Ammodo, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Sena, Janivo and Brook Foundation. We are very grateful for the support of NEWTHING members, our friends and all the donations. The BIMHUIS is sponsored by Grolsch.
