Sorry, this event is not available anymore

In the design relay, teams of professionals and students will start to think about the future of the concertzaal in a short amount of time. That happens in close collaboration with the architects Jo Coenen, Ad Roefs and Ton van der Hagen. Before the teams get to work, there first will be three free inspiration sessions in the Schouwburg which are accessible for everyone. These can be attended live and via a live stream from 5 to 7 October.

In the design relay, teams of professionals and students will start to think about the future of the concertzaal in a short amount of time. That happens in close collaboration with the architects Jo Coenen, Ad Roefs and Ton van der Hagen. Before the teams get to work, there first will be three free inspiration sessions in the Schouwburg which are accessible for everyone. These can be attended live and via a live stream from 5 to 7 October.

Inspiration sessions
During the first inspiration session, 'the development in the performing arts and public' is central. A number of guest speakers share their vision on this subject: Rob van Steen (director Schouwburg Concertzaal Tilburg, Merlijn Twaalfhoven (composer, organizer of music events, writer), Micha Hamel (i.a. composer, conductor) and Terry Brochard (researcher of the future theatre experience). During the second evening, 'the arts cluster as public space' is central. The guest speakers this evening are i.a. Bas van der Pol (Alderman of Tilburg), Karen Neervoort (director of Fontys University of Arts) and Bureau Coenen on two exemplary projects: TivoliVredenburg & Amare. The last night 'the Concertzaal in the city centre' is central. The guest speakers are Jo Coenen (architect Concertzaal Tilburg) and Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman (urban designers Stadsforum).

Design day
After the public inspiration sessions, on Saturday October 16, a team of professionals and students will work in a closed meeting on inspiring designs for the concertzaal of the future. Those ideas and designs will be presented in December and form the basis for the conversation about possible architectural changes in and around the hall. Talents can register until September 26 to participate in this design day by emailing half an A4 motivation letter and portfolio to basmastboom@castonline.nl. Also accessible for internationals!

The three inspiration sessions of the design relay can be attended free of charge in the Schouwburg on 5, 6 and 7 October.
