We are entering a busy time. And you want to get off FB. Don't miss a thing. Subscribe to our free newsletter.

Here's why.

Holland Festival, Poetry International, a summer full of art. And meanwhile, a whole new arts system is being whipped up. The Netherlands is eager to get outside, experience music, experience art and eat food trucks empty. And to overturn the subsidy system.

It's a forest of trees. The Cultural Press Bureau is as ever (for 9 years now!) a reliable guide in festival land. And if we don't see or describe something, we'll give you plenty to talk about in between all the art. Because that is what the Cultural Press Agency does best: tell you what is really going on, in the boardrooms, with the council groups, between artists. We are the only ones to tell you what is being kept quiet. Because we take the art world seriously.

And now we want to serve you better. Away from Facebook hypes. Away from unwittingly giving away your data to Mark Zuckerberg, or other parties which have nothing at all to do with us, or with you.

We are moving to e-mail!

That's why we want your e-mail address. We are going to guard that address like wild boar her piglets. We will not give your details away to anyone

At that address, we do start sending you an email every week, with our latest news, a few good tips, and a personal note. 1 mail per week. (Unless you sign up for the daily update, but that's just a notification that there's news).

And if you get fed up with us, just unsubscribe. So simple. It's like Facebook. But without the spying.
