About us

Drawing Centre Diepenheim is the only place in the Netherlands where drawing is the starting point of all activities. As an art venue, the Drawing Centre plays an important role in supporting talent, inspiring audiences and collaborative partners, and mentoring artists during residencies. With a team of 6 members and 25 dedicated volunteers, we take care of two buildings (together 450 m2) and nine artists’ gardens (together over 12,000 m2). In the forty-year history of exhibitions, we and our predecessors have welcomed hundreds of artists and curators to Diepenheim, as well as thousands of visitors from the region, the country and far beyond.

Widening and renewal

Drawing Centre Diepenheim sees drawing as a universal human activity that allows us to come to grips with the vagaries of our times. We encourage artists and curators to step outside the box of traditional drawing and engage in radical experimentation. By doing so, we want to broaden the common idea of what drawing is and arrive at innovative forms and applications of drawing art.
