is a magazine and a vehicle boosting surprising collaborations between artists and non-artists. We boost and connect sensitive and sensible artists, designers, writers, photographers, musicians, performers.. so they can collectively 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.

Upcoming Events


October 14 2020 , 18:30-21:30 (free)

Lochal, Tilburg

KONT’s meeting event for professionals, students as well as other passionate people in all areas of art, design, literature, performance, technology… Artists, and also passionate non-artists who would like to do ‘something’ with artists and have something to offer them, are welcome. The idea is that open minded artistic people from different backgrounds and generations meet, inspire, and maybe find a match.

Are you looking for a specialist ('writer looking for illustrator'), do you want to get feedback on what you are doing or do you just like to meet creatives in your city...? Whatever your motivation, it is worth going on a slow date!

Due to the corona virus, max 26 people can participate. Reservation required! Mail redactie@kontmagazine.nl. . Include your name and a brief description of your work. Stay at home when you feel unwell.
