More about Amare

Stichting Amare’s Supervisory Council at full strength once again

Three new, highly qualified members joined the Supervisory Council of Stichting Amare in January 2021. 

Looking ahead with Geesje Prins, head of programming

What can we expect to see on Amare’s stages after it opens? Head of programming Geesje Prins and her colleagues are already working hard to prepare the programme from September 2021 on. Prins looks ahead with us and tells us more about the cornerstones of Amare’s programme, the many spots for public performances in Amare and the opening programme for the 2021-2022 season.

A chat with director Jan Zoet

In September 2021, Amare will open its doors: a new cultural centre on Spui in The Hague. With four grand halls and a surface area of seven and a half football fields, it promises to be the ultimate place to experience theatre, dance, concerts and other outstanding performing arts. 

What's in a name

Why the name ‘Amare’ for an OCC – an Onderwijs en Cultuurcentrum, or Centre for Education and Culture – built in the centre of The Hague? In fact, choosing a name for such a multifaceted centre was a long and complicated process.

Amare through the eyes of Thomas Offermans

It’s been more than five years since architect Thomas Offermans sat down at the table with NOAHH, on behalf of Jo Coenen Architects & Urbanists, to bring Amare into being. “Now, we finally get to see everything we thought about back then.”

Your business event in Amare

With 4 halls with unique atmospheres and characters, 8 lobbies, 2 restaurants and a conference centre, The Hague will soon have a convention and event centre with national and international allure.  

Exploring the corporate options with Diederick van Eeden

With four large halls and facilities, Amare will be a world class centre for events, corporate meetings and conventions. We looked up Diederick van Eeden, manager of business events, to hear about the many options that Amare will offer.

Visual brand identity

In collaboration with our colleagues at Zuiderstrandtheater, Residentie Orkest, the Royal Conservatoire and Nederlands Dans Theater, strategic design agency Silo has drafted a brand book outlining the vision, mission and core values of the Amare brand and giving form to our visual identity.


The municipal council’s decision in 2015 to opt for sustainable new build instead of renovating the old Dr. Anton Philipszaal and the Lucent Danstheater, has had some remarkable requirements – one of them being that the first sustainably built arts complex in the Netherlands will be located in The Hague. 

Amare: the facts

In the summer of 2021, Zuiderstrandtheater, Residentie Orkest The Hague, Nederlands Dans Theater and the Royal Conservatoire will move to the heart of the city. The first programs are expected to take place in September. Amare will be a place for encounters, reflections and new discoveries.
