Since 1998, EHBK has united a diverse, international community that runs the alternative, not-for-profit platform OT301 as a collective, in which housing, work and public functions are combined to contribute to the arts, politics and subculture.
EHBK shares knowledge and organizational duties in a democratic manner and encourages all members and visitors to take part in our experiment.
In the OT301 we have living spaces, ateliers for artists, artists in residency, a concert room, bar, gallery, vegan kitchen, cinema, yoga classes, rehearsal spaces, radio station and various workshops. We are open almost every day.
We have a couple of public spaces organizing various events:
Stichting Studio301 is a non-profit foundation based in the OT301 in Amsterdam. Its goal is to programme a variety of music, dance, performances, theatre, markets and workshops.
The main focus are the night programs from Wednesday till Saturday. Weeknights are usually programmed with live bands, weekend nights are more dedicated to electronic music. With both types of programming we aim to have a good balance of young talent and (inter)national bands and DJs. Besides working on an exciting, experimental, fresh, edgy and high quality programming we think it is important to keep prices low and make sure the vibe is good.
The MixTree is an idea, a collective
A MIX of culture, a diversity of languages and passions.
A TREE of gastronomy, poetry, books, vinys, comedy, theatre, wine, photography, music, gallery, cinema, painting, food, design, dreams and realities.
A NEW SPACE with different branches where to grow, create and share around diverse projects, colours, shapes and collaborations.
The space is multi-faceted, at times activities, studies, processes are visibleto an audience of visitors in an unofficial manner, at others a platform that shows work produced by the gallery and created extemporarily. We organize a variety of recurrent activities open to the public: exhibitions - workshops - performances - debates.
