Mission statement

STUK chooses for dance, image and sound and all hybrid forms in between.

The presentation of artistic work in an inspiring context is key: in this house artists develop and create new work, people take part in courses and workshops and we reflect upon art and the world together with our audience.

STUK works from within a dynamic university town and considers the social context art arises from as an integral aspect of its working field. Our balanced programme combines international reference work and exciting new forms. Our audience is just as diverse: next to students and adults, we now also reach children and youths with the Young Audience Programme.

STUK builds an arts centre of the future by linking art with education, science, youth work, training and more. STUK takes care of artists and audience, brings them together and looks for an active relation between them. That way, STUK wants to be a motor for the arts field.
