Public Institution
Mama Homebase for the youngest generation artists and art lovers >

MAMA exists for 15 years and has turned into a much discussed and influential platform offering an intractable, kaleidoscopic view on contemporary visual culture to be seen and experienced by a broad audience.

Over the years, MAMA developed into an expert in the field of youth- and contemporary visual culture and found itself at the foundation of an active development in Dutch art, aimed at participation. The original target group aged 16 - 26, has been active in the organization from the beginning. In 2005 / 2006 MAMA developed two educational courses intended to develop talent: MAMA Rookies, a course for auxiliary jobs in the cultural field and Rookies MA (formerly Mister Miyagi Curating Tomorrow), a DIY curatorial traning course.

MAMA also participates in projects and workshops by others. In its programme and educational courses the organization frequently collaborates with other cultural institutions at home and abroad.
