is a magazine and a movement boosting surprising cross-disciplinary creations. We match sensitive and sensible artists, designers, writers, dancers, photographers, musicians, performers, ... to encourage each other and united, take a prominent place in society. KONTs heart lies in Eindhoven.

KONT hosts informal gatherings for makers, curators and anyone interested in meeting and working with them, so called KONT Slow Dates. Subscribe to our newsletter (scroll down) if you would like to participate. Also on facebook we post our events.

Creators in the widest sense: artists, writers, dancers, lace makers, video artists, musicians, photographers… even inventors, engineers, curators and thinkers (philosophers, journalists, theoreticians) are most welcome.
