Announcement of Dutch Council for Culture recommendation

21 May 2012

Today saw the announcement of the Dutch Council for Culture’s recommendation published in its Succeeding in Culture recommendation report. The Dutch Council for Culture is advising Dutch State Secretary of Culture Halbe Zijlstra to allow NDT to retain its position within the basic cultural infrastructure and to grant the entire requested subsidy amount of €5,920,000.

NDT is pleased that this recommendation shows the Council values and recognises NDT’s status and significance for modern dance in the Netherlands and worldwide. The company is, however, concerned about the impact the cultural spending cuts will have on the cultural landscape of the Netherlands. 
 
The full recommendation is available here (in Dutch only).
