Welcome to the Vondelbunker!
The Vondelbunker is a autonomous cultural center run by volunteers sharing the conviction that space is political. The bunker has been open since June 2011, running an unruly and dynamic cultural program. We run this space according to the following basic principles:
1. Everyone is always welcome:
The door to the Vondelbunker is always open to everyone. We like being together in a place where no one feels
excluded. We want to be a safe space. Feel free to speak up and talk to one of the crew if you feel uncomfortable. You have our support, as we hope we have yours.
2. No one makes moneyzzzz:
We are a non-profit space run by a small collective of volunteers in a non-hierarchical manner. We do this out of
love for this space and the underground. We try to host events and programmers for whom it’s hard to organize
events in other profit-driven spaces in Amsterdam. All the money that we get through donations is used directly for
keeping the doors of this space open. Since money is left out of the equation, an events success radically stays a
non-measurable and personal experience. This makes why the Vondelbunker uses the slogan: failure is an option!
3.Facilitate & collaborate:
We are a space that facilitates! Do you feel like engaging with our space, bringing in your thoughts and your ideas?
Are you currently looking for a suitable place for your exhibition or performance? Or do you have another idea? We are always looking for enthusiastic people and new ideas. We collaborate with organizations as equals and are able to give free space open for experiment. Check the DOE MEE page to come in contact with us.
4. None asks for moneyzzz:
Even though we are in the city center of Amsterdam and we are not a squatted space, we will never, ever ask our visitors for an entrance fee. Everyone is welcome! However, we still have to pay our rent and electricity bills each month to get by. How can this even be made possible? With your support!
5. Support & solidarity:
We have been running this space since 2011, which we have been able to do because of your generous donations! You can help the Vondelbunker by donating at the box at the bar, or support by volunteering your time. Do you kunnen doen door jullie gulle donaties; je kan helpen in de want to help volunteer? We look forward to meeting you!
