Awards Date + Venue

Continuing our tradition of partnering with unique, historic, and culturally important venues, we're pleased to announce that the 6th annual Art and Olfaction Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday May 2, 2019, at Oude Kerk, in Amsterdam.

 

About Oude Kerk

Right in the heart of De Wallen - Amsterdam's red light district - The Oude Kerk is the first church ever built in Amsterdam and the oldest building in the city. And we say old, we mean old: It was founded circa 1213 and consecrated in 1306 by the bishop of Utrecht with Saint Nicolas as its patron saint.

As a contemporary art institute housed in a historical monument, the Oude Kerk examines its past, current and future meanings and its dynamic environment as both a participant in and representative of the development of our society. In the Oude Kerk artists and historians collaborate on high-profile and influential presentations; contemporary art and heritage go hand in hand.
