KONT Magazine

is a magazine and a platform boosting collaborative 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 Slow Portfolio Dates. Subscribe to our newsletter (scroll down) if you would like to participate.
