Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam is a unique, independent non-profit cultural organization. It focuses on eliciting inspiring discussions, creativity, bottom-up initiatives and innovation. Pakhuis de Zwijger organizes events with inspiring speakers from the creative industry and urban development. The magic spreads further then the stage; discussions and unexpected crossovers that follow up are just as special. Since Pakhuis de Zwijger opened its doors in September 2006, it has become a platform with an exemplary role, with a community that frequently comes together for networking meetings, lectures, discussions and workshops which all have an interface with creation and innovation.
