Since 2015 Space is the Place organizes a progressive and adventurous concert series. With De Ruimte (Amsterdam) as a home base, Space is the Place curated over 500 concerts with a focus on jazz and improvised music. We initiate concert evenings and at the same time try to form a creative breeding ground stimulating the scene, also by crossing genres and disciplines.
In 2017 Foundation Space is the Place was born. The official goal according the statutes: organizing improvised music based concerts in which sounds the necessity and pleasure of adventurous music. Space is the Place is managed by Tim Sprangers, with the helping hand of Maaike Timmers.
