With the theme of “Overcoming the Present, and Envisioning the Future”, “NL HOUSE” will open for a limited time at SHIBAURA HOUSE as a place to connect Japan and the Netherlands.

As a collaborative project with the Embassy of the Netherlands in Japan, “NL HOUSE” will be held for a limited time this summer, and will explore the possibility of further reactions in Japanese-Dutch cooperation through online talk events and participatory exhibitions that connect people working in various genres between the Netherlands and Japan. The event will also feature recipes of Dutch cuisine arranged with Japanese ingredients, as well as Dutch snacks and stationery.

 SHIBAURAHOUSE, a community development agency that handles events, has many things in common with the Netherlands, from its culture of art and design to its approach to symbiotic society and environmental issues. Over the years, the Dutch embassy has been collaborating in various fields, holding events and disseminating information together. The opening of “NL HOUSE” this time is an effort that summarizes our activities to date. 

The event is designed to be a zero-waste venue, and the materials used in the space decoration and exhibition will be reused to make eco-bags through workshops. NL HOUSE as a whole aims to be “zero-waste” and to produces as little waste as possible.

Period: 23 July – 10 August, 18 August – 5 September
Address: 3-15-4 Shibaura, Minato-ku, Tokyo
